Forbes has a list of what they consider to be the ten most significant food trends of the past year. Number one on the list, of course, is all-day breakfast. Restaurants across the spectrum of price point and service level have all been making breakfast a more prominent feature on their menus, from McDonald’s introduction of all-day McMuffins to the explosion of bottomless brunch at higher-end places.
Another one of the trends highlighted by Forbes is, unsurprisingly, fried chicken. The frenzied excitement that greeted David Chang’s fried chicken concept and Danny Meyer’s introduction of a Shake Shack chicken sandwich shows that Americans’ appetite for fried fowl is bottomless right now.
Two more surprising dishes on the Forbes list are Poke and Shakshuka. While these dishes may not have the same name recognition or popularity ad some other more established culinary trends, they continue to increase in popularity as time goes on. Poke is the latest of the raw fish preparations to take America by storm in the wake of sushi and ceviche. Shakshuka is a braised egg dish from the Middle East that is winning over hearts on food blogs everywhere.
Which of these trends do you think are here to stay, and which will fizzle out by this time next year?
