Pie's the New Cupcake — 2010 Food Trends at Weekly Open Thread

Posted By on Fri, Dec 17, 2010 at 5:48 AM

Over at Serious Eats, they've compiled a list of 10 food memes for 2010: Korean tacos, epicurean ice cubes, Gourmet's resurrection to iPad, and The Cooking Channel, a new network for people who prefer the food without the 'tude. This is the year that pie took on cupcake for Most Ascendant Baked Good; read the comments here, and you'll be wanting to short-sell cupcake stock. No end-of-year list can be complete without a mention of Four Loko, the drink that just packaged what everyone was already doing anyway, right?

You can see the list as a slideshow here, and click the links for deeper coverage. Read the list of suggested trends from Serious Eats readers here.

Our fair city is certainly keeping up, but we've also got other things going on, as well. I'm loving the house-made pickles I get occasionally in restaurants — that's a trend I can fully support.

Any trend here that didn't make these list? And what do Bites readers predict for next year? (For a look at one Bites reader's perspective from inside the restaurant industry, check this post from Elevated Southern.)
