Top Food Trends of 2013

Just in case you're wondering, ISUU's Food Industry News tells us that upcoming trends are going to focus on locally-grown foods and healthier meals for children.

Here are the top-ten trends predicted in Mark Braun's article, "National Restaurant Association's 'What's Hot in 2013' Culinary Forecast Predicts Top Food and Drink Menu Trends":

  1. Locally sourced meats and seafoods
  2. Locally grown produce
  3. Healthful kids' meals
  4. Environmental sustainability
  5. Children's nutrition
  6. New cuts of meat (e.g., Denver steak, pork flat iron, teres major)
  7. Hyper-local sourcing (e.g., restaurant gardens)
  8. Gluten-free cuisine
  9. Sustainable seafood
  10. Whole-grain items in kids' meals
Is there any particular fad or practice you'd like to see go away in 2013?

Raspberries. No, that would be mean, since so many people love raspberries. But I'd like everything made with raspberries to come in a non-raspberry option. There's a reason that another word for a Bronx cheer is "raspberry". Ppppppphhhhhht! lol
