Learning doesn’t end in school, or even in the kitchen. Even if I did not pursue cooking after I got my diploma, I still want to keep abreast with food trends. Food is a beautiful topic (although a little challenging to write about ;)).
Sysu International, the name behind country’s well loved food brands like Clara Ole, San Remo Pasta, Lee Kum Kee, McCormick, among others launches Taste Setters workshop.
Some of the food trends that were discussed during the talk are salted eggs, matcha green tea and food parks. In the previous years, we hailed and consumed some of the food trends like croughnuts, frozen yogurt and cleanse juices.
