Chef Survey 2019

Learn about hot and up-and-coming trends that will be dominating the menu landscape in 2019 as identified in Restaurants Canada’s annual Chef Survey. Gain key insights for your menus on what flavours, ingredients and techniques are top of mind for both chefs and diners.

We surveyed nearly 300 professional chefs across Canada on a variety of menu items and cooking methods as either a ‘hot trend’ or an ‘up and comer’. Hot trends are menu items and cooking methods at the peak of popularity, while up and comers are menu items that could be the next hot trend as interest in these items are on the rise.

This research was conducted on behalf of Restaurants Canada by BrandSpark International, a leading Canadian market research company with expertise in the foodservice and restaurant industry.
