Economical Trends in the Foodservice Industry 2008





2008 Culinary Trends Survey
August 2008

We need your input! The foodservice industry is a fast-paced, turnover-rich world where restaurants open and close and trends come and go. Our Culinary Trends survey is here to get specific – we want to know everything from how your in-house mixology program works (if you have one) to your experience in culinary school (if you went), and much, much more.

You do not have to be an executive chef to complete this survey, but you must be a foodservice professional (please be sure to select the right category when asked for your job position). The survey is anonymous, however if you want to be quoted, please make sure to put your name and your quote in the appropriate comments box.

Results for this survey will be part of an annual culinary trends article on and will be presented at the International Chefs Congress. Upon completion, you will be automatically entered to win one of ten free 3-day passes to the upcoming International Chefs Congress, our 3rd annual culinary symposium featuring over 60 of the world's top chefs, pastry chefs, sommeliers, mixologists and more.
