There’s always a new food trend on the horizon. This year people are already predicting what it will be. Savory TV reported on a survey that was recently compiled on the subject:
Every year in October, the National Restaurant Association surveys professional chefs to find out their culinary forecast for the upcoming year. This year, over 1600 chefs responded, rating over 200 foods as a “hot trend”, “yesterday’s news” or a “perennial favorite.” What made the list? Healthy, nutritious, fresh locally grown foods, superfruits and exotic fruits, artisan cheeses, free range meats, sustainable seafood, organic wine, smaller portions and mini foods such as tapas and dim sum. Overall a refreshing focus in general and very healthy trends, let’s see if they prove to be true in the months to come!
These specifics also made the list for the hot 2009 food ingredients:
- Ricotta cheese and comfort foods
- Asian noodles in broth
- Flat iron and flank steak (due to it’s affordable cost)
- Ethnic flavorings for poultry
- Breakfast foods any time of the day ( we love this one!)
- And the trendy spice for 2009……Tarragon!
And a cooking class is always the way to learn more!
