With the New Year approaching rapidly we all start to think about the year that has past, reflecting on all the trends and fads and all the lovely moments shared with friends and family over delicious meals.
We’ve put together a list of trends that we think may be left behind in 2012 and what we predicted they will morph into in 2013.
2012 – Out vs 2013 – In
Tasting menus vs Family friendly food
Sushi Bars vs Shisa Nyama *
Cheddar cheese vs Goats cheese
Panna cotta vs Rice Pudding
Margarine vs Butter
Processed soy protein vs Grass fed meat
Low sodium salt vs Sea salt
Fat Free vs Healthy fats
Imported superfruit vs Local, seasonal superfruit
Artificial sweeteners vs Stevia
Elimination diet vs Portion control
Ultra lite Beer vs Craft Beer
Baked Crisps vs Kettle crisps
Drinking wheat grass vs Eating leafy greens
*Wikipedia definition: Shisa nyama is a term used in many South African townships to describe an informal braai or barbecue where friends come together near a butchery, to grill meat in an open fire. The site is usually provided by the butcher owner and only people who buy meat from the butcher are allowed to use the facility. Shisa nyama is a Zulu phrase and it literally means “burn the meat”.
