How to Keep Up with Hotel Food Trends
Trends in hotel food change from year to year, just like décor and other things travelers anticipate. The interesting thing about the food scene is that it has stayed relatively static for the past year or two. It has just been difficult to implement during the pandemic, and many hoteliers are still trying to get their menu updated. Here are some of the things people want the most.
- Plant-based proteins – More and more people are giving the vegan lifestyle a try for both health and environmental reasons. Vegetarians want plant-based proteins, too, even though they may not be as strict with other animal products. Green peas, lentils, and chickpeas are some of the main ingredients that can provide protein without introducing a common allergen (soy).
- Special diet menu items – From allergies to sensitivities to autoimmune conditions to religious restrictions, there are all sorts of reasons a hotel guest may be on a particular diet. Dairy and gluten are two of the top categories people are avoiding.
- Culturally diverse food – Since people can travel around the world to try local cuisines, they want to be able to get ethnic foods while traveling closer to home. A culturally diverse menu can attract travelers.
