What would another hectic end-of-year (not to mention, end-of-decade) holiday season be without ubiquitous year-end lists. The Best Album of 2009, The Top 100 Movies of the Decade, The Ultimate Celebrity/Golfer Falls From Grace of the New Millennium — you can’t surf the web or turn on the news without seeing yet another new list.
Some of the lists are insightful, some are not and others are simply hilarious. Here are a few food-related lists from the former category and one from the latter.
Food blogger, chef and prodigious tweeter, Dana McCauley, has released her annual projection of the Top 10 Food Trends (http://www.danamccauley.com/Newsletter.html) for the coming year. Among the list, McCauley sees home meal replacement, upscale comfort food, local super foods and French-style macarons as hot trends to watch out for in 2010.
Foodchannel.com (http://www.foodchannel.com/stories/2154-top-10-food-trends-for-2010) chimes in with a Top 10 list that includes experimental restaurant concepts, “food vetting,” umami, and a revival in the barter system.
And on his blog, porkosity.com, (http://porkosity.blogspot.com/2009/12/2010-food-trend-predictions.html) Toronto Star columnist (and former food critic), Corey Mintz, offers his snarky take on the “mega trends” chefs will be pushing this year. In his list: Fish tacos are the old cupcakes. Hamburgers are the new fish tacos. Everyone still hates foam; and Hypnosis-themed restaurants where they make you remember a better meal.
