- More people will be cooking at home, and doing it better;
- food communities will continue to grow (hear that, Chowhounds);
- kitchens will be more eco-conscious (I guess we'll all be recycling our Zip-Locs);
- we'll be eating like locavores (wasn't this a big trend in 2007?);
- bioengineering and genetic modification will continue to make strides (um, also not exactly news?);
- food philanthropy will increase as individuals and companies try to combat world hunger;
- there'll be a bigger push for controls on food safety (hear that, China?);
- a bigger gap between "exotic" foods and "day to day" needs (just like the widening gap between the uberwealthy and the unemployed, I guess).
- And then, to make it an even 10 I suppose (because we so love our numbered lists) the Food Network sandwiches in some questions that aren't really predictions at all. I feel so cheated. Viz; Is putting the calorie counts on everything too much information? And, Where in the world will the next flavor trend come from?
