Grazing tables

Gone are the days of a party with the usual buffet spread. Nowadays we are seeing grazing tables pop up everywhere! Cold meats, figs, gourmet cheeses and crackers are all the rage. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing to look at, but they are also super tasty. The Great thing about grazing tables is that there are no rules, you can literally put whatever you want on it! Expect to see these pop up at events as a replacement for starters.

Guilt-Free Desserts

Wouldn't it be great to be able to indulge in all those sweet treats without feeling bad about it? You may have spotted some sugarless desserts at quaint little cafes around Perth but in 2019 they will be upping there game. Soon it won't be too hard to find a healthier alternative to satisfy your sweet cravings. We bet you can't wait to get your hands on healthy chocolate, ice cream and much more! This is one trend we are super excited about.

New Ice Cream Bases

Following along with the healthy deserts comes guilt-free ice cream. We are already seeing supermarkets stocked with vegan Ben & Jerry's and that low-calorie goodness, Halo Top. 2019 will ring in some unique ice cream flavours that you've never seen before. Step aside Smashed Avo, we are now seeing a new way to enjoy avocado. You may have already tried this treat at Whisk but we're sure you'll see many more different variations of everyone's favourite summer treat pop up this year! Avocado is not the only projected ice cream base that we will see in 2019 with hummus, coconut and much more expected to pop up.
