The apotheosis of food trends?

Today at the bakery: a maple bacon French macaron. Pretty damn delicious, too.

  1. Crispy pig lettuce wraps. Pig is the new chicken.

    1. Which bakery? Masse's was selling those a couple of years ago, so the curve was back down the line in the Bay Area.

        1. Was the bacon humanely raised by an artisanal producer from Brooklyn?

            I prefer free-range pork, fairly traded, and raised by a wizened abuelita in Bolivia. And the maple must spring from an organic plot 28 miles west-northwest of Montpelier. Terroir, dontchaknow.

                Looks like the Terroirists have won!

            1. Was watching an episode of tripleD on Food where i saw this guy from Vancouver BC make a confit of pork belly then deep fried each portion!

              That should be close to the apothosis!

                I've eaten there -- it was delicious, especially with hollandaise! But that's only ONE food trend -- the bacon macaron was two!
