Somehow we're already at the end of 2020. This year felt like 100 years and two days in one, and we're all more than a little happy to kiss it goodbye ... or, more appropriately, give it your finger goodbye .

In 2021, many of the food trends we've seen this year are likely to continue, especially if the COVID-19 pandemic continues and people continue to cook at home, order take-out and get more things delivered than ever before. Below, we've only forecast a few things that we think you'll see more of in 2021.
Herbal products will continue to be a trend through 2021, as 28 percent of people said they ate more protein from plant sources during the pandemic, according to the IFIC. More people will flirt with veganism, but others will only eat things that taste good and happen to be vegan. Expect the usual suspects to innovate even more, especially in fast food restaurants, but some forecasters predict that newer things like plant-based "fish" will also play a big role on the horizon.
As we all continue to spend more time at home (are you tired of hearing that phrase?), Many of us actually have time to think about breakfast. Seriously, even cereal saw a big bump this year. Instead of having a cold granola bar on your commute to work next year, expect more Instagrams about making breakfast rolls, releasing new fast food breakfast items, and possibly even the overnight resurgence of oats in the next year. Oh, and on that note ...
We literally started playing with our food in 2020 and we will see it stay that way through 2021. The seeds of whipped coffee (and strawberry milk ... and peanut buttermilk ... etc) and pancake granola are becoming the next wave of Instagrammable foods that will likely take hours and seconds to prepare ... but who's going to judge?
Pickling / fermentation
This is kind of a 2020 trend that won't get more popular until next year ... Maybe because we literally ran out of mason jar lids this year because so many people tried canned foods. Expect people to show off their gardens in the spring and how they turn their crops into jars of pickled cucumbers, red onions, radishes, and more.
Virtual cooking classes
Looking for a fun and safe date idea? Tired of playing with friends on Zoom Trivia for the millionth time? Expect more invitations to virtual classes to take with your family at home, or even more in-depth ones to follow with friends on Zoom. Everyone from famous chefs to your favorite restaurants has these up to date, and we believe more people will benefit from it in the next year. (Psst, we're already doing some!).
Sourdough is so 2020. We are entering our first full winter during the pandemic and Comfort Food will be the name of the game, what carbohydrates always are to us. By 2021, your feed will be full of people taking the time to cook and slice delicious gnocchi from scratch, hang their homemade bucatini all over the kitchen, and even work on a large pot of Sunday gravy. Even if you resist the urge to immerse yourself in trends like banana bread and Dalgona coffee, it will be difficult not to Googling pasta toppers for your KitchenAid for the next year. Is this the year we finally love gluten again ???

After a huge surge in demand (according to Coresight Research, US Online Grocery Survey 2020, demand for online grocery services is expected to grow 40 percent this year), it seems like grocery services are finally in control of this new world of increased shipments. But why stop there? Everything from meal sets to alcohol can be delivered now and people will try it out (we personally hope takeaway cocktails stay here !!). Remember to tip generously !!
Environmentally conscious packaging
This may seem particularly unlikely given the single-use packaging we saw in the pandemic, but that's exactly why we expect more environmentally friendly packaging in 2021. For example, the company Verterra manufactured containers for on the go. This year, compostable cardboard sheets for take-out boxes are made from balsa from tree stumps and other innovations, which combat leaks. If you are a green consumer, you should be breathing easier soon!
Broaden your cultural horizons
While social media can objectively be terrible, platforms like TikTok have enabled developers from all over the world to share what they're cooking in the kitchen during the pandemic. We anticipate that in 2021, people will go further than simply "liking" these videos and looking for foods from cultures they may not have been familiar with before. Then they'll either prepare the dishes themselves at home with the help of the experts (more on that in a minute!) Or google to find the closest take out serving this cuisine.
Gone are the days when we ate birthday cake that someone else just spat on everywhere. 2021 is all about custom desserts and snacks as people find ways to safely celebrate all of life's milestones. Yes, that means cupcakes may be making a comeback, but so are things like foil wraps, canned cocktails, and mason jar salads. Yes, it's really going to be 2013 again!
Inexpensive premium alcohol
Best. News. JE. We're seeing a shift in people turning their noses up at less than three dollar signs amid the realization that high quality alcohol can be got on a budget. Because people have more time looking for the good stuff (and less time getting good shots of vodka in bars), the good stuff will be much more in demand ... even if it doesn't cost much more well shot.

Bartending at home
Now that people are bartering at home, we could see homemade bitter ingredients, maraschino cherries, flavored alcohols, and simple syrups growing in popularity. Don't be surprised if you feel the urge to fill your bar cart in the months to come.
Boards of all kinds
More like Quar-Cuterie, am I right? We've seen pancake boards, hot cocoa boards, "jarcuterie" boards, and french fry boards to name a few (although we probably didn't have anyone with us ...?). So expect these to keep taking over your feed while we all look for new things to add to Instagram. Can we put pizza boards in front of the cannon? Or is that just a pizza on a board?
With many people likely to stay home most of the time, restaurants will continue to innovate by selling take-and-bake kits. This includes pizzas, bread, and other meals that have already been put together but not cooked. You can even get steaks and deli at some of your favorite spots! The perfect connection between cooking and take away.
As mentioned earlier, comfort food has become a key element of the pandemic. Therefore, it is not surprising that popular fast food restaurants have seen large queues for pickups. This makes perfect sense because they're affordable, accessible, and convenient, yes, but they also remind us, as our Senior Food Producer June Xie put it, "of more lighthearted days when french fries with varying degrees of slackness are in industrially developed secrets It dips sauces that always taste somehow, so right but so wrong. "Expect these lines to continue and meet your friends for a socially distant burger date in the future.
