What Will Be the Next Food Trend?

Written by

Kale, cronuts and ramen burgers are all recent food trends that have swept restaurant menus and social media in recent years. But before a food trend captures the attention and appetites of the masses, is there a way to predict what will stick?

David Sax, author of The Tastemakers, thinks so, and this week on Good Food he talks to Evan Kleiman about why some trends succeed and others flop. He says the next food trend to watch is small Indian food restaurants (listen to his interview, above).

We also asked our listeners to give their feedback on what they think will be the next food trend. We got responses ranging from road kill, dumplings, meatloaf to orange chicken burritos.

What do you think should be the next food trend?
