    What do you think about food trends.... What are the trends that you see right now, and what do you think of them? What do you think will be the next trend(s) to emerge, and what were the most stupid ones from the past?

    Stacking was stupid.
    Hmmmm...I think tea is still going strong. We'll see it mainstream with tea smoked (whatever)...., more herb infusions, still Asian noodles maybe more fusion with loads of veg., Artisan cheeses are more available.
    Local foods are becoming an attraction here.....outdoor grills set up to cook just local foods.

    I can only Speak for The Canadian Scene
    Greater Toronto Area and Montreal

    Fusion Cooking is very Hot as is Al Fresco with a Middle Eastern
    Twist to it
    Ethnic Cuisines are very common
    Especially Carib-African
    Tex Mex seems to have disseppeared as has Cajun and
    Creole which had a lifespan of a gnat

    I feel the next step will be a Fusion of Italian with South
    asian

    Hey
    what do I know....
    Ciao
