La Bonne Cuisine Event Trends for 2020 

We thought it would be fun to put our magician hats and try to guess what trends we will be seeing next year when it comes to food, catering and events.  We asked some of the members of our team to tell us what they are looking forward to next year (or what they would like to see) at events such as galas, weddings and corporate receptions.

This is what they had to say:

Cynthia Garcia, General Manager

“I would love to have more or bring back the “Action Station” as much as possible.  Interaction with guests is what good chefs live for, so they can showcase their talent and taste, and to share with guests.” 

How can you incorporate this trend in your events?  

-Paella is a vey popular way to have a crowd-pleasing action station.  The pan can be huge and eye-catching, smells delicious, and the freshest it is, the better it tastes.

“I believe next year we will embrace natural and organic foods even further.   Plant based proteins, collagen-based drinks, and beyond organic produce will be used much more and to enhance international cuisine offerings.”

How can you incorporate this trend at your events?  

Incorporating spices that can be used on the spot to create a unique dish with the guidance of a chef.  You can have special condiments available for guests to use such as a custom-made local chiles and herbs mix for Mexican food or Infused Napa Valley Olive Oils for Italian cuisine.

How is La Bonne Cuisine incorporating this trend?

We are creating a station that will resemble an Asian Street Market stall that will also incorporate local ingredients and products.

“Connection has become very important in these times that we are relying so much on technology and we are so divided politically.  Because of that, family-style meals will become more popular, even in the corporate event setting. “

Family-style service is not only popular, but it can also be an affordable catering option!  Embrace it, and create other opportunities within your event to create moments of connection and interaction.  Line your tables with craft paper and write down interesting questions and conversation starters that your guests can use to connect with each other.
