Food Predictions for 2017

By: Cooking Channel Staff

Whether it's hidden flavors or textures, jolting temperature shifts, or cultural crossovers, surprise is poised to be the flavor of the moment. This plays to our sense of adventure and toys with our expectations. It charts a new direction in novelty: a move beyond the mash-up to something both more subtle and exciting. Surprise plays it close to the vest, offering one thing to the eye or the mind but another to the palate.

Look for:
• Sweet-savory flip: savory funnel cakes, fish sauce caramel
• Inventive fillings: creative Juicy Lucys, modern tamales
• Crossing cultures: mapo ragu, tofu caprese
• Mass market: cauliflower rice (Green Giant)
