Ah, 2022: the year of Butter Boards, Negroni Spalliato (with Prosecco), Ghost Kitchen, and more… I couldn’t have predicted these things, but that doesn’t stop me from trying again this year. In addition to curating a list of all food trends, think We are also including just a few hope (Like dinner and a show with Harry Styles). Not just overarching trends (nostalgia is IN, spinach is OUT), but also certain recipes we’ve just discovered ourselves for too long (guilty!) or we just don’t think we’re getting enough love. Specific recipes (people – let’s make homemade marshmallows). 2023 is sure to be a turbulent year.
Sentimentality is the name of the game of the year. We see the revival and modernization of everything from school cafeteria desserts to his old-fashioned dinner recipes. In between are classic cocktails and nostalgic homemade versions of TV dinner-style meals. Don’t worry if you can’t cook. Boxed Mac & Cheese is also available. Even carbonated drinks are making a comeback in our minds. Have you heard Sierra Mist being replaced with something called Starry, perhaps to appeal to a younger generation?
As food prices rise, people start going back to basics and looking for bean recipes (made from scratch!), homemade plant-based meats (tofu, I love it), and fried foods (why pay for it). I think. Can You Make Your Own Fried Chicken Sandwich Wazoo?), DIY Fermentation, How To Use Whole Chicken (Spatchcock, How To). I am delighted to join you on this journey of discovery. I also hope that I can provide some guidance along the way.
In all honesty, this is only half the coin for 2023. the other half chaos cookingChaos cooking is the modern term for fusion cuisine, but this current iteration contains a little more chaos than ever before. Bye, we’re throwing together some old fashioned (see Nostalgia) recipes and more to see what sticks. See, when it comes to Big Mac crunch wraps, savory ice cream flavors, and ube in everything, we’re all for it.
