2014 Food Trends

In my heart, simple dishes like squid jerky or anchovies  are forever staples.  Unpretentious and forged in childhood nostalgia, they can be rediscovered as trendy {I hear oily fishes will become spotlights on dinner menus} or not, I don’t care.  Their staying power extends further than that overnight cronut but here are a few things the foodie virtuosos are forecasting will be highly coveted.

Shakshuka.  A middle eastern staple of poached eggs in spiced tomato sauce.

Let’s get…freekeh!  …an ancient grain that’s predicted to tromp over quinoa.


Dacquiose.  Move over macaron!


Restaurants in retail stores.  You can buy your dad a shirt and eat an entire entree for dinner at Tommy Bahamas {with other retails chains following suit}.

Korean foods.  Which to me, was always a star.  Even Trader Joe’s now carries kimchi, bibimbap, Korean bbq, seaweed salad, roasted seaweed (and I’m certain, more will be added to the mix).  A welcome sight for this girl who has a dream that one day, I won’t have to go to 3 or 4 different grocery stores.

What’s something that is forever your favorite whether it be a food trend or not?

There will be a new video up tomorrow


Your Squishy Monster ^.~
