a real mouthful feature
You’ve spent endless hours in the kitchen, tasting, testing and re-trying your restaurant’s dishes to ensure that they’re just right. Now they’re ready to serve to your customers, but there’s just one problem: they have to be motivated to order them from your menu first.

taste of the secrets feature
Enhancing everything fudgy brownies and ice cream through to quirky crisps and even healthy green tea, salted caramel is a flavour that we all now know and love. Yet it wasn’t all that long ago that salt and sweet, sticky caramel was considered to be a daring and unusual flavour pairing that you’d only find on the most experimental and indulgent restaurant menus; salted caramel is one example of effective flavour pairing that has, for all intents and purposes, become a flavour in itself.

emerging cuisines feature
According to recent research from Mintel, consumers are becoming more adventurous with the cuisines that they cook at home. This is no surprise when you consider the exciting newcomers to the UK restaurant scene that have introduced food lovers to emerging cuisines, and broadened their horizons – and their palates.

sushi 2016s unexpected feature
A mainstay of Japanese cuisine from the 8th century, sushi was virtually unheard of in the UK until the 70s when the first Japanese restaurant opened in London. Still, it didn’t fully find its feet as a mainstream dish until much later, well after the business meetings of the 80s where it featured in trendy buffets.

national chef feature
As one of the most prestigious chef competitions in the UK, and as a proud sponsor, we always look forward to the announcement of the Craft Guild of Chefs National Chef of the Year finalists. This year’s crop of chefs is without a doubt the most exciting to date, with chefs from several esteemed Michelin star restaurants, and the final of the competition is going to be tough – but who will we be seeing battle it out for the title at this year’s The Restaurant Show?

beer day britain feature
Britain is a truly beer loving nation, with 15,000 pints of beer believed to be consumed EVERY MINUTE – that’s 247 pints a second. With such an unquenchable thirst for beer, it’s no wonder that we now have our own annual national beer day in the UK: Beer Day Britain, which celebrates our adopted national alcoholic drink and is urging everyone to say ‘Cheers to Beer’ on June 15th.

grate britain feature
Cheese is a favourite foodstuff that never goes out of fashion; it merely evolves over time. It can be a meal in itself, or complement a starter, main course or pudding. It’s also guaranteed to fuel a foodie conversation, with most people having a favourite cheese alongside a strong regional loyalty.

are we reaching feature
It’s true that we Brits love a bargain. And when the recession hit in 2007, many brands turned to discounting and vouchers to appeal to our thrifty natures, and keep customers coming through the doors even when the purse strings were less than slack.

why you should bulk out feature
From balls to bars, and bakes to shakes, the British public have never been more spoiled for choice of ways to consume more protein, or felt more compelled to do so. No longer just for bodybuilders, high-protein diets have come to the fore once again, and trend-savvy restaurants are capitalising by adding more protein-rich foods to their menus – or even making protein the main ‘muscle’ of their dish selection.
