Consumer demand for healthier, more sustainable and more local dining options is rising fast. And this is reflected — as it has been for the past several years — in the National Restaurant Association’s “What’s Hot” trend predictions for 2018. The results of an annual survey of nearly 700 chefs across the country, released in December, produced the following list of the 10 hottest restaurant concepts… nearly all of them closely tied to the goals of FamilyFarmed and other Good Food movement advocates.
FamilyFarmed’s annual Good Food Festival always is a big public celebration of the fast-growing Good Food movement, and thousands of people again joined us for the event on March 26 at Chicago’s UIC Forum. The following photo essay captures just some of the color, the excitement and the fun of the Good Food Festival.
