Horecatrends | Tips for Culinary videos worth watching – week 10


YouTube has been a source of inspiration for spotting trends past few years. Every day, thousands of movies are uploaded with new and interesting content. We too sometimes use videos as a source of inspiration to write about. With this week again a selection of videos which Demi Poppe thinks are worth it to watch.

This week a video about the popularity of the Brussel sprouts on the American menu’s and part of the sprout are harvested in the Netherlands. Also a video about the tentacle of an octopus that is sold as a corndog. A new creation by the team of the Dominique Ansel restaurant and bakery in Los Angeles. Finally, a video about oysters, why do we eat them alive and more information.

Brussel sprouts | Popular on the menu in New York

This Dutch video shows the method of preparation of Brussel sprouts at restaurant ‘While We Were Young’ in New York. The sprouts are prepared as crunchy deep-fried ‘sprout’-balls in combination with mustard seeds and pistachio nuts. But the Brussel Sprouts are used in many ways, for example food blogger Natalie Rizzo even uses them in smoothies and salads. Many restaurants in New York have these Brussel sprouts on the menu. Eating vegetables in a complete new way is a worldwide trend and at this moment Brussel Sprouts are very popular in NYC and according to the owner of the restaurant this will continue for a long time. The American sprouts growers cannot handle the demand and so part of the sprouts served NYC are from the Netherlands. So they might consider naming them ‘Dutch Sprouts’;-).

Corndog on a stick | With a fried tentacle of an octopus

We at horecatrends.com have been huge fans of Dominique Ansel, check out all the articles we wrote about his cronuts, waffogato, Milk & Cookie shots, his bakeries in New York, Tokyo, London and now in Los Angeles.  Restaurant and Bakery Dominique Ansel in Los Angeles sells a corn dog on a stick made from the tentacles of an octopus. The preparation of the octopus takes a while (about 5 hours) but according to the people in the video is this worth it. We think it would be great to serve those at food festivals!

Everything about eating oysters

Not everyone is a fan of it, oysters … Lots of people just aren’t that into eating oysters and they admit that the idea that you’re eating an oyster while it’s alive is gross. In this video a lot of background information about eating oysters and are they really alive? I find this video especially interesting because they also briefly show that oyster have no brains and do not feel the pain in the same way as we do!
