Trends: Pop of Color

Brown, bland-looking food is so 20th century. Today’s modern diners (read: Millennials and Gen Z), want vibrant, eye-catching meals. Whether it’s to show off on social media or just bask in the glory of their beautiful plates, unique ingredients and garnishes can make or break a dish.
  • Watermelon radishes have been chefs’ darlings this year—their bright pink color and crunchy texture lend themselves to a variety of uses.
  • Highlight your summer menu with sun-colored yellow squash blossoms’ slightly bitter flavor and tender texture.
  • Infuse rice, cheesecakes, bagels, and beverages with the deep blue/purple tones of butterfly pea tea.
