The NEW YEAR typically brings NEW YEAR resolutions filled with foods we promise to stay away from as we shuffle our routines and sign-up for gym memberships.  It also brings a lot talk about 2015 food trends.

It’s about this time of year when we start to see trend lists popping up almost daily predicting what may or may not end up on the tip of your fork. So we decided to join the banter and weigh in.

Here’s our top 10 hopefuls for 2015

BEETS, BEETS, BEETS

Move over kale. This red root is ready to rock your cellar and table.

SMOKE IT

Time to switch off the BBQ and crank up your smoker. Smoke everything from ice to bread to fresh pasta.

SMALL PLATES

Sample and eat rather than order and devour. Community eating helps make friends too.

MORE MASHUPS

Easily bored? Try mixing the unexpected together. Mac N’ Cheese Quesadilla or Waffle Tacos is a good place to start.

MORE MAPLE SYRUP

We can’t find a reason why you shouldn’t tap into this liquid sweetener anytime you reach for sugar.

TEAFINITY AND BEYOND

No simple cup of tea please. Take your tea beyond the bag and use its leaves for poaching, smoking, as a seasoning, and even to make sorbets, cakes and sauces with.
