Will 2019 see the demise of milk as we know it? Siobhán Brett weighs in on the debate
Soy, almond, rice, hemp, coconut, cashew, pea. You name it. Coffee shops and corner stores in New York City, where I live, stock between three and seven alternatives to dairy milk, depending on customers’ preferences and caprice. Travelling around Ireland with a handful of New Yorkers in October, I would try to interrupt what I considered uninformed, doomed orders for oat milk lattes. But in Galway, Ennis and Kilkenny, I was surprised to see the requests met without a moment’s hesitation.
