The new food trend coming our way this autumn

Posted: 27th Sep 2017

Steak fans - have you heard about the big food trend heading our way this autumn?

Food is pretty much the new social currency - hello #foodporn - with quality meat cuts an increasingly popular post – for example, there are now nearly 7.5 million using #steak on Instagram alone.

It's here that the perfectly seared steak, adorned with edible gold leaf, comes in.

As Insta food fans will possibly know, this was originally seen on the plates of Silicon Valley's biggest hotshots, with the gold leaf liberally applied to the quality cuts of meat. The end result? A truly 'Insta-worthy' dish - in short, the ultimate indulgence.

This has prompted Sainsbury's to introduce the new steakhouse-inspired cuts, which, when paired with their Edible Gold Leaf 23 CT (£3) gives you your piece of the new trend!

Rebecca Deeley, Product Developer at Sainsbury’s comments: “We know that a steak dinner is now much more of an occasion, and many of our customers are seeking inspiration from restaurants for on-trend cuts and accompaniments to try something new. Applying our edible gold leaf over a perfectly seared and succulent steak can quickly transform a classic evening meal into something truly sensational!”
