4 Hot Culinary Trends for Fall 2019

Fall 2019: a season of warm colored foliage, apple picking, cooler weather and new culinary trends!

As a leading catering and events center in Columbus, we at The Grand Event Center believe that food is an important part of weddings, family gatherings and celebrations of all shapes and sizes. To us, it’s important to keep up with the latest culinary trends so that we’re able to serve our guests the freshest, tastiest and most memorable meals possible.

Our award-winning executive chef changes the menu every season—four times a year—to keep things different and exciting for our guests. To help you plan for your next big event, here are four of the top culinary trends for fall of 2019.

Fruit Additions

There’s no doubt that apple-picking and the fall months go hand in hand. With that being said, it’s only appropriate to load on the fruits to any dish this fall! From apples and berries to pomegranates and peaches, the Grand Event Center doesn’t shy away from tasty fruits. To enjoy this trend, try our Oatmeal Stuffed Baked Apples, Mixed Greens Salad or Peach and Blueberry Cobbler with Vanilla Ice Cream!


Seafood Plates

Fall is the perfect time to enjoy seafood—especially with October being National Seafood Month! Seafood is low in fats and cholesterol and high in protein, vitamins and minerals. This fall, we’re giving our guests the opportunity to enjoy this trend all while eating healthy! Order the Great Lakes Whitefish or the Grilled Swordfish, and we’re sure your cravings will be satisfied.

A Pinch of Spice

There’s nothing like adding a pinch of spice to your dish to warm it up a bit! Fall time is known for pumpkin and cinnamon spices, which is a hot culinary trend we are here for! From apples and berries to pomegranates and peaches, The Grand Event Center has incorporated these spices and more into our seasonal dishes to give guests the fall-warmth they need to enlighten their guests.


Vegetables Galore

This fall, people are wanting to incorporate more flavorful vegetables into their daily meals—the more the merrier, as they say! Not only is this trend delicious, it’s also great for your health! Eating more vegetables can lower blood pressure and your risk for heart disease. At the Grand Event Center in Columbus, guests can order from a wide selection of vegetable-based meals, like the Fall Vegetable Pot Pie, the Paneer Makhani and the Autumn Squash Bisque.
