‘Talking Food’, a new bitesize podcast series, has been launched by Bidfood.
The 10-part series looks at a range of topics related to foodservice and hospitality which are set to influence 2019’s top food and drink trends and cuisines for the year ahead.
The podcasts hosted by Bidfood’s head of insight and customer experience, Sarah Whiddett, the first series of Talking Food sees the company’s team of experts explore trends at a macroscopic level, reflecting on how societal changes have influenced what consumers are choosing to eat and drink.
The podcast also explores global cuisines, which are becoming more commonplace on UK menus, including Afro-Caribbean, Middle Eastern and Modern European. Each episode of the series brings to life how operators – from restaurants and pubs, to schools and care homes – can harness these trends and use them to shape their menus.
Commenting on the podcast series, Whiddett said: “It’s been great fun creating Bidfood’s first ever podcast. We’ve intentionally kept each of the episodes as short and digestible as possible so that anyone and everyone can find time to listen. As well as exploring some of the bigger influences feeding into 2019’s food and drink trends, the podcasts give helpful advice for those wanting to weave some of this year’s trend influences into their menus.”
