Once again, it is the time of the year when food journalists wheel out the world’s worst portmanteau, the listicle, and predict where food trends will head in 2012. For a writer, they’re brilliant content. No editor is going to sack you if Cambodian does not become the new Thai or the world’s predicted hottest restaurant closes. Your audience does not hold you accountable if the hot food destination that you suggest collapses into civil war. So why not let a machine do the work?
Here’s my automatically generated predictions for the hot food trends of 2012. If they come true, you owe me money.
- Mid-90s Modernism
- Caneles are the new Caviar
- Hot Kitchen Tool: The Darning needle
- New Habit: Emetic Thursday
- New Nordic Cosmopolitanism
- Food Destination: Uzbekistan
