Whether you can get out and about, or you have to sample the newest food and drink trends at home, 2020 has undoubtedly been an interesting time. Fortunately, you can check out some of the best food and beverage trends this year has to offer below. Let us know what you think about them! 

Pour over coffee

While there has previously been a great deal of excitement about new-fangled machines that produce the perfect cup of java, both in coffee shops and in the home, the current trend is a little more straightforward. 

Yes, that’s right people are once again embracing pour over coffee. That is coffee made from hot water directly poured over ground beans. The good news is that this type of coffee is not only delicious but super simple to make with either a filter, percolator or french press. 

Of course, taking some time to investigate The Best Coffee Beans for Pour Over will help you make sure that your brew rivals the stuff you will find in your local shop. You may wish to experiment with filters, French press, and different kinds of percolators, too, to see which one suits your taste the best. 

American Brunch 

Stacks of fluffy pancakes dripping with maple syrup and butter, crispy bacon, and flat sausage patties, along with eggs sunny side up, scrambled, or over easy are a major culinary trend right now. 

Yes, that right, American breakfast or brunch is giving The Full English with its fried bread and black pudding a run for its money, and it’s not hard to see why. After all, while the English fry up is an all savory affair, the combination of sweet and salty flavours in its American counterpart make it almost irresistible, especially if you are nursing a hangover from the night before. 

In fact, American brunch is so popular right now that retro-styled diners are popping up all around the UK solely dedicated to the cuisine. The good news is that if you can’t get out and about right now, you can easily whip up your own version.

Sourdough, everything 

Mainly due to the extra time that many of us have on our hands, one of the biggest trends of 2020 has been baking our own bread, Namely sourdough bread. In fact, at the beginning of lockdown, you couldn’t get a bread-making kit for love nor money, they were so popular. 

Of course, the aromatic smell of a baking sourdough combined with the dense bread and chewy crust is truly irresistible and isn’t so hard to DIY either. First of all, you will need to create your own starter and then feed it every few days. Don’t forget to name it suitability either; Clint Yeastwood, the favourite moniker I have come across so far! 

Once you have your starter established, you can then use it as the base of your bread. Although, you can also whip up donuts, pittas, muffins, pretzels, and just about any other baked goods with a delicious sourdough twist.
