If you're thinking of fun experiences to try in 2020, consider trying a range of breakfast and brunch venues rather than a lunch or dinner. Everyone loves breakfast and brunch, and it's not necessarily limited to a certain time of day. Here are some of the popular trends to look forward to in 2020, for yourself and catering for corporate events.
The Popularity of Brunch Continues to Grow
Brunch is an increasingly popular dining experience, especially for younger people in Australia. Sydney corporate catering events are going to see more breakfast and brunch in general.
Rise in Fermented Beverages Such as Kombucha
Fermented beverages are excellent accompaniment to just about any breakfast and brunch food. Not only is it delicious and popular, but it's also healthy. If people want to start their breakfast off right, kombucha is an excellent choice. It comes with antioxidants and beneficial bacteria, which also aids digestion. Fermented beverages can be included in a drink bar as an exciting sober option.
Savoury Breakfast Foods
Hash brown trays, sweet potato pancakes, and more: any breakfast food can be made savoury to appeal to those who don't like sweets. Many people like breakfast because of the salts and fats, rather than sugars and syrups. Having both sweet and savoury can be a great way to broaden your options, while also making it so that everyone has something a little heartier for breakfast.
A rise in veganism and vegetarianism is also leading to some great plant-based options. A lot of people aren't just eating totally vegetarian or vegan, but are trying to eat less meat in general. Sometimes this is for the purposes of animal welfare, but other times it's sustainability. Since plant-based options are getting better and trendier, 2020 is going to see them included a lot in brunch and breakfast.
Focus on Sustainability
The focus on sustainable can go beyond veganism and vegetarianism. Locally-sourced produce and meat is becoming popular for consumers and food outlets. Rather than getting mass-produced goods, your brunch or breakfast can include products from local farmers. These goods aren't just sustainable, but are fresher and tastier. Think about farm fresh eggs and locally sourced cheese, in addition to vegetables and fruits.
Zero-waste is going to be included in lunches, dinners, breakfasts, and brunches. Compostable packaging and eliminating single-use plastics will be notably important. For your breakfast and brunch, consider offering sustainable products such as paper or reusable metal straws. Work with venues that focus on zero-waste or less waste, and that offer recycling.
"Tipsy" Breakfast and Brunches
It's becoming more popular to include alcohol options with breakfast and brunch. It isn't just mimosas and Bloody Mary's anymore. There are many coffee-based and tea-based cocktails that also pack quite a punch. If you're planning a celebratory event like a milestone adding some drinking options is a great choice. A cocktail menu adds a memorable feature to your breakfast or brunch, and lets you celebrate some seasonal flavours.
Breakfast tacos, breakfast burgers, and other "fusion" choices are becoming just as popular as traditional breakfast meals. Consider breakfast and brunch bowls, and other similar options. If you have a favourite type of food, such as Mexican or Asian cuisine, your caterer can find ways to incorporate those flavours into the meal.
