Food Network Kitchens Forecast: 2011 in 2 Recipes
Large-format cocktails (aka punches) will be big in 2011. Here, we mix up a batch drink with the spirits of the moment, tequila and mezcal. And for extra 2011 trendiness, take it a step further: pickle the okra yourself and embrace DIY artisanship.
3 tablespoons okra pickling liquid, plus 6 to 8 pieces pickled okra (preferably smoked)
Stir all of the ingredients (except for the okra and lemon wedges) together in a pitcher. Pour over ice into Tom Collin’s glasses. Garnish with pickled okra and lemon wedges.
Experimental tacos, designer vegetables, and Asian noodles will all be trending hot in 2011. Put them together and you get something serendipitously delicious, something we think of as 2011 in a dish.
