2010 Food Trends
Any guess as to what 2010 will bring us in the way of food?
I don't see anything on the horizon threatening to dethrone the biggest juggernaut food trend of them all: malnutrition.
-Dueling theories, more intense than before, on what foods are actually bad for you (and some reprisals of that famous scene from Woody Allen's "Sleeper")
-Artisanal revival (even more) of the not-a-filet parts of meaty animals that more people used to eat long ago, among elites
-More trend toward unprocessed among the health-conscious elites
I thought this was going to be a massive list of food trends!
Let's see... I'll try and predict a few (p) and make some up (m). This is for the UK.
P: More home grown veg
P: Many high quality fish cuts will go through the roof thanks to shortage, and also [more] responsible fishing techniques. I sadly anticipate paying £6-7 for a tuna steak from a store.
P: An increase in consumption of other less recognisable seafood
P: Increase in veganism, and improvement into availability and quality of vegan foods
M: Someone is bound to "discover" or introduce a new obscure national cuisine, like malaysian or something
M: Sausages will increase dramatically in price and quality
T__T Oh man I love cooking!
From a UK perspective, I'd pretty much agree with Soop and add in a continued growth in the availability of regional produce. My supermarket now regularly stocks tomatoes that travel all of about two kilometres from where they are grown.
As to the fish, I was in the supermarket yesterday and heard someone say that there was very little variety and it was really just all pollocks.
Coconuts! Real coconut.
powder, oil, flour, paste, products
The coconut is geting its just rewards in a major way!
