According to National Restaurant Association research, health and nutrition are rapidly growing as hot trends in restaurants this year. In a recent survey of more than 1,600 professional chefs (members of the American Culinary Federation), nutrition/health as a culinary theme ranked No. 11 of hottest trends on restaurant menus in 2009. Among the health related elements that elevated the issue: the importance of offering healthful foods, promoting produce and fruit items, using smaller dishes, using more fish, and focusing on gluten-free/allergy-conscious meals.
