Mark Moeller of The Recipe of Success was featured in Flavor & The Menu’s panel of experts on Top 10 Flavor Trends of 2021. On the trend of plant-based milks: insights and opportunities with plant-based dairy alternatives, he says “All operators should have a portion of their menu for plant-based options to appeal to both flexitarian and vegan diners. And a restaurant that can execute a great vegan cheese program has a foundation that can be built upon. Operators don’t necessarily need to educate here; they just need to impress the taste buds.”
