Just like the fashion industry, the food industry has trends and fads each year. Some trends catch on for years (think chocolate chip cookie dough or cupcakes) and others never really catch on at all (foams). Other trends of late include: Salted caramel, bacon and kale
What can we expect for 2014?
Here are some predictions:
-Citrus flavorings, especially grapefruit
-Upscale Comfort Food
-Biscuits (being used in place of sandwich breads, hamburger rolls, etc)
-Non wheat noodles (gluten free gains in popularity)
-Hybrid Desserts (cronut, ice cream cupcake, dessert pizza)
