2018 food trends

A taste of ma­jor 2018 Food trends, some great new of­fice lunch op­tions and a culi­nary tour of the world – in Cape Town.

So­ci­eti Bistro Global Food Tour

The best way to get to know the coun­try you’re trav­el­ling in is through its food – bite into a wedge of pizza in Naples and you’re re­ally im­bib­ing its an­cient his­tory – find­ing food is, af­ter all, our pri­mal in­stinct. But with the rand’s cur­rent ex­change rate it doesn’t look like many of us will be trav­el­ling any­where soon. So it’s great that Cape Town restau­rant So­ci­eti Bistro has launched a ‘Global Tour of Food’ – a culi­nary jour­ney cov­er­ing 21 coun­tries and in­clud­ing both rus­tic and so­phis­ti­cated ur­ban cui­sine, with wine pair­ings too. It kicks off on 28 March, when head chef Robert Gi­jam will be pre­sent­ing the first of his 21 menus. Re­gions covered in­clude the Caribbean, Si­cily, Spain, Por­tu­gal, Provence and the Mid­dle East, as well as Ja­pan and Main­land Asia. For more info, visit www.so­ci­eti.co.za/bistros. Let’s hope the idea catches on in restau­rants na­tion­wide.
