If you want to make your restaurant stand out from the rest, these new dishes will do just that.

Herbs, Roots and Mushrooms

Using herbs and roots while cooking your food or even putting them on the food you ordered is the trend many people followed in 2020 and continued doing so in 2021. Either chili flakes on pizza or oregano on pasta, herbs are a hit in the year 2021.

Mushrooms are also a huge part of almost all the dishes of 2021. They decorated our pizza and added flavor to our pasta and texture to our soups.


Eating everything plant-based is another trend of 2021 that people followed blindly. Without any doubt eating, plant-based is healthy and will help you remove toxins from your body, but the protein we get from different kinds of meat is also a need of our body.


A wide range of pasta has made the shelves of our home. From Penne to Fettuccine, 2021 introduced so many new ways to cook, eat and store pasta. So many sauces, bread, and meat styles were introduced that go with pasta perfectly in the current year.


In 2021, everything was fired up. From cocktails to cheese blocks, to steaks, everything came soaked in the alcoholic film that lights up when you bring them in contact with fire. They look alluring and if you put some cinnamon powder on the fire, it looks like a magician’s doing.

Frozen Food

With the COVID situation and the heat that summer hit us with, frozen foods became a hot trend in 2021. This trend includes vodka popsicles, frozen fruits, jam popsicles, and frozen chocolate desserts.

Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate also became a staple in 2021. We used it for cooking, baking as well as eating just as is. The fact that you can add sugar to it to adjust it to your liking is a huge plus when you are cooking.

No/Low Alcohol Drinks

No or low alcohol drinks were also a hit for the previous part of this year. Instead of drinking alcoholic drinks in summer, people are opting for low alcohol, low-calorie drinks.
