Calling all foodies: some of the capital's best chefs  are doing their thing this weekend in Regent's Park, at the capital's' biggest culinary extravaganza, Taste of London.

Forget avocado on toast - the new breakfast trend is spice, specifically Indian spices. Add a little more heat into breakfast with Indian spiced broccoli hash with fried egg (on the menu at D&W if you want to see how it is done), or, for an easy DIY one, spiced scrambled egg on toast.

 People are being more cautious in what they put in their bodies, let's call it ' food conscience', and so they want food that is nutritious and delicious. Matcha is already a big thing: it is a fantastic product and is being used more and more in food. A great hack is matcha salt-  simply mix matcha with sea salt for a tasty – and health-boosting  -  seasoning.

Indigenous ingredients are the new buzz. Nordic using Nordic. British producers using British… Native fish is the big thing here now, with tasty pollock  being  the fish to watch .

Vegan and vegetarian food are going to another level.  I'd say black polenta is going to be the Next Big Thing.  Serve it with  wild mushrooms and black truffle.
