Calling All Foodies! Three Foodie Sisters Dish Out the Food Trends You NEED to Try This Winter

We recently sat down with food bloggers, Jenna Gore, Megan Smorgon and Talia Blumberg for an inside scoop on the latest and greatest food trends of Winter 17.

We often find ourselves drooling over your deliciously bespoke Instagram feed @spoonfulofsistsers, which has an impressive following of avid fans. What is the secret behind your successful Instagram account?

People love dessert and eating things that look and taste amazing, but they also love to scroll through our shots of too good to eat foods. With the stress of day-to-day life, people want to escape and often find it really calming looking at beautiful colourful images of food. Especially when they represent magic, happiness, hope and fun…

As food bloggers, there is nothing more exciting than trying to discover and predict the latest and greatest food trends!

With that said, what do you predict are the next big food trends to hit our Instagram feeds?

People love food and beverages that are as good to look at as they taste. Chances are, you’ve seen the unicorn food trend embrace the world of Instagram by storm. Why? Because unicorns are magical, photogenic, colourful, sparkly creatures that represent anything can happen and that dreams come true.

We think the next mystical creature to trend in the Instagram universe will be the mermaid. We all want something magical in our lives. The mermaids unrivaled beauty and charm combined with the beautiful colours of the ocean and sea shells will make for some brilliant and beautiful food creations.

A few bloggers have started to make mermaid toast. A magical blue coloured cream cheese toast topped with gold leaf and sprinkles. But we predict that the trend will soon get serious.

Who do you think is leading the charge on this mystical food trend?

Posh Little Cakes, a small home baker based in Perth was the first to get on this trend. We collaborated with Posh Little Cakes and challenged her to come up with the most beautiful mermaid inspired desserts. We love collaborating with small home businesses and showcasing their incredible creations on our page.

As predicted, this trend has gone viral with lots of people around the world jumping on the mermaid bandwagon and coming up with the most unreal mermaid creations inspired by us and Posh Little Cakes!

You can never get enough rainbow and unicorn but we think it’s time for a fresh, new mystical creature to pop up all over our Instagram feeds!

Since our Mermaid Cake post, which received an abundance of Instagram love, people all over the world have started to create mermaid cakes, cupcakes, cake pops, mermaid lattes, blue chocolate coated strawberries… the sky is the limit, and people are getting creative!

Zanita Whittington x French Connection

Perhaps you have noticed the emergence of ‘slash’ usage which many multi-talented young professionals are using to describe their occupations. The term slashies has arisen to describe people, usually of the millennial demographic, who manage multiple careers concurrently. Slashies refuse to be confined to their day jobs, their professional titles include successful side projects, hobbies as well as their nine-to-five.

We recently teamed up with the ultimate slashie, Australian blogger/Model/photographer/Social Media Mogul/Creative Director, Zanita Whittington. Zanita who is both multi-skilled and multi-faceted selected some of her favourite transeasonal pieces from our Autumn Winter collection for her exclusive New York edit. Take a look.

The Alley: Fast Food, Re-Imagined for the Vegan-Friendly Masses

When you think about fast food, what comes to mind? You probably imagine greasy cheeseburgers and fries dripping in saturated fat. Are we right? The Alley, a new plant-centric vegan café in Melbourne, aims to broaden that image. Think signature burgers with gluten free buns, fresh salads with maple bacon, vegan ice-cream and cold pressed juices. Fast food just got re-imagined.

Alexandra Pyke, the brains behind the Alley, has recently returned home to Melbourne, Victoria after an 11 year stint overseas where she partnered in iconic eateries like The Fat Radish, The Butcher’s Daughter and Leadbelly. With a host of successful business ventures in her wake, Pyke hopes to lead the charge in delivering inexpensive, fast (just under 10 minutes) and healthy but indulgent vegan-friendly food in Melbourne.

Pyke swears by the Maple Bacon Burger on a gluten free bun and the mouth watering Hale to the Kale salad with tempeh as an add on.
