LEADING CHEFS LADLE OUT THE LASTEST TRENDS IN DINING FRESH, HEALTHY AND ORGANIC

Will healthy cuisine become a reality this year? Diners have reason to cheer as top chefs steam ahead with ideas for healthy cuisine. Whether it’s Continental, Albanian, Iberian, Tahitian, or new-age cuisines, health friendly ‘ingredients’ are in focus with an emphasis on fresh and preferably organic foodstuff . leading food experts share their insights on the food trends this year. Wash ingredients really well. Look out for any signs of discoloration, bitterness or even allergic reactions. Learn more about genetically modified (GM) foods. They always look the most attractive in the supermarket, but look for valid accreditations. Always buy food which can be traced back such as branded flour, cereals, milk, and even sweets. Food adulteration is rampant, so be careful when buying from the open market. Serie cuisine may see a revival. Many forgotten regional cuisines are also returning to the table.

TIPS FOR EATING HEALTHY: Eat in moderation and frequently.

Limit salt and sugar.
