As winter draws closer, one thing we can all look forward to is the delicious array of new food trends to try while snuggled up on the sofa. There’s platefuls of unusual combinations and exciting flavours from around the globe to sample, so we’ve put together a selection of those which we think your taste buds will love.
Yoghurts are no longer just a sweet treat. Blue Hill have invented a range of colourful savoury options made from the milk of their grass-fed cows. There’s plenty of unexpected flavours to choose from, including; parsnip, carrot, sweet potato, butternut squash and tomato. We think they make a fantastic option for post-lunch snacking!
Could this colourful creation be the answer to the ‘bread is bad for you’ debate? Invented by Professor Zhou Weibiao,
purple bread is made entirely from natural compounds, is rich in cancer-fighting antioxidants and is digested 20% slower than regular white bread. It’s said to have all the extra benefits without compromising on the taste we know and love.
One of the reasons we love the arrival of winter is because it means party season is just around the corner. Frosé (frozen rosé) is certain to be a talking point at your table and it’s also incredibly easy to make. Simply freeze your favourite tipple and then blitz it into a slush, adding some lemon juice and sugar to finish.
This naturally-dried super fruit (pronounced Bey-oh-bab) can be found growing on the end of the African Baobab tree. Crack the fruit open and you’ll discover the powdery-white fruit which is packed full of nutritional goodness. Experts claim it’s filled with vitamin C, iron and fibre, and contains significantly more antioxidants than any other fruit.
Matcha is the nutritional equivalent of 10 cups of regularly brewed green tea and, according to Matcha Source, it provides over 137 times more antioxidants. Matcha is made when tea leaves are powdered into a solution, so the whole leaf is ingested. Benefits are said to include dramatically boosting metabolism and even slowing the growth of cancerous cells.
Kale is so last year because Kohlrabi, the ‘turnip cabbage’, has quickly exceeded in superfood status. With a sweet radish flavour, Kohlrabi is full of vitamin C and fibre, and can be eaten raw or cooked. As it also contains a high amount of potassium, it’s great at regulating fluid levels, allegedly removing those dreaded puffy under-eye circles.
