Do you know what a jackfruit is?
Great to be back at Casual Dining again this year. As usual, there was an excellent line up of speakers providing food for thought, bags of inspiration whilst challenging a few perceptions about the industry.
The foodie trend was definitely focused on vegan and plant based options. Have you heard of a jackfruit? If not then you soon will. Jackfruit is a healthy and sustainable vegan meat replacement and is one of the current ‘must have’ ingredients that everyone in the know is talking about. Sampled it at Beacon Foods who were using it in a insanely delicious BBQ pulled ‘pork’ sandwich – destined for bigger things this year I am sure.
