In fact, many foodie influencers predict that modern Indian cuisine will be one of the big food trends of 2018. The UK’s Waitrose Food & Drink Report for 2018 lists Indian Street food as one of the top 5 food industry trends for the coming year.

When Indian menus are requested for events, the reasons vary; sometimes people simply love Indian cuisine, but often we cater Indian or multicultural weddings, or events where some or even all of the guests hail from India. There is also a trend for themed parties and galas, including Bollywood themes or "Epicurean Escapades," such as the recent Holy Cross Hospital Gala that featured a lavish display of international food stations with an emphasis on the popular Indian station.
