Hot Trends 2015

Harbour & Jones have their ear to the ground when it comes to food trends in events. Here are our top predictions for 2015


Modern British rules

Classic dishes will be given a modern twist with contemporary cooking styles and quirky ingredients.

Authentic Mexican and simple Scandinavian

These will be two of the main cuisines inspiring chefs and winging their way to a menu near you.

Korean, Persian and Peruvian

These will also feature heavily – look out for hybrid fusion menus and pop-ups aplenty.

From film to fork

2015 is the year of blockbusters – Star Wars, Terminator, Independence Day, Fantastic  Four, The Avengers and Pirates of the Caribbean all come out in the summer and will heavily influence event themes and food trends

Serving Styles

Doing it for yourself

Self-service bars for guests to ‘construct’ their own dishes with an array of sauces, toppings and seasonings

Food takes centre stage

Street food evolves to make the chef the star

Fine dining relaxes

Think exquisite joints of meat carved at the table, sharing dishes passed around

The most important meal of the day

Breakfast & brunch is king

More events are taking place before the working day begins, menus will feature exciting new breakfast and brunch options

Expect the unexpected

Indulgent or healthy, British or heavily influenced by international cuisines; anything goes with the breakfast menu – as long as it is the talking point

Food with a conscience

Reduced food miles and food produced for social good. Chefs will work more closely with producers to ensure responsible sourcing – and they’ll be shouting about it
