Creating dishes that meet every dietary need

From the increasing occurrence of food allergies to the growth in vegetarianism and veganism, dietary demands are on the rise in casual dining. Chefs are countering this minefield of menu challenges by creating dishes solely consisting of universal ingredients — fruit and vegetables, non-glutenous grains, legumes, herbs and spices.

Bowl food is the perfect universal ingredient

Bowl food and the value of versatility

Bowls are a perfect vehicle for universal ingredients as they embody good health, ingredient variety and nutrition. A typical bowl incorporates a range of easy-to-source, flexible fresh foods and grains, simplifying kitchen operations and positioning venues as inclusive operators.
