New year's predictions

(article, Culinate staff)

Gourmet.com recently put up a slideshow with the website's 13 picks for food trends in 2009. In brief? Among other trends, the website is plumping for more home cooking (thanks to the recession), ice cream, yogurt, homemade cocktails, more food-contamination scandals, school-lunch reform, non-Western food, "slow travel" (to go along with Slow Food?), and locavorism so severe that restaurants will actually start serving dirt. Terroir, indeed.
