Whereas the natural sweeteners and the sugar alternatives has considerably increased. 2020 is going to witness products like dates syrup and natural fruit sugar added to desserts to satisfy the sweet tooth.
- Comeback of European Cuisines – According to the annual report of OpenTable, the leading restaurant reservation platform, European cuisine is all set to come back. Since the restaurants are looking to instil the rich history and diverse cultures across the region, the European cuisines are steadily being adopted by the catering Chatswood.

If you simply take a stroll at the supermarket, you will find many brands of milk prepared from quinoa, peanut, almond, cashew etc. Deciding which dairy alternative to go with is ultimately the consumer’s decision. The catering castle hill mentions that the plant-based milk alternatives are on high demand, as they can be used even in cakes, breads etc.

But Pegan is gaining more importance now.’ The people following pegan diet eat vegetables, nuts, fruits, fish, meat and eggs. They avoid legumes, dairy, grains and processed food items. This Pegan is a combination of the bases of paleo and vegan diet.
