15 black-coloured foods that taste as chic as they look
If you’re not much of a rainbow person and would give any rainbow-coloured food a wide berth, we got you covered. The black food trend is the thing for you.
While the colour black is usually associated with burnt food, these are definitely anything but and in fact may taste even better and are healthier due to the lack of artificial colouring. The black hue is mostly thanks to natural substance such as coconut ash, black sesame seed, squid ink and bamboo charcoal.
Not to mention how chic and Instagram-worthy black foods look, you’ll be the talk of the town when you serve any of these at your next dinner party:
