Kale Chips

This has been a food trend for a little bit, but it's still fresh and new as there are so many delicious ways to dress up your kale chips -- with sesame seeds, fleur de sel, or whatever your favorite seasoning is. The basic process of making a batch is to remove the leaves from their stalks, wash, dry, and lightly coat with oil and salt before baking.

A great way to try making these natural chips is to stop by your local farmer’s market, pick up a fresh bunch, and cook up a batch. If you’ve never been to one, a quick search on Local Harvest will you give a few options.

Avocado Beer

With the multitude of recent articles on the nutritional value of avocadoes I've been seeing across a range of food sites, now's the time to enjoy avocadoes. As part of Avocado Festival, Angel City Brewery will be unveiling ‘Avocado Ale.’ The blend will contain cilantro and other ingredients that would go into guacamole.

If you can't make it to L.A. to try this new beer blend, bring the cutting edge to your home still with the Molecule-R Cocktail Classics Kit, which gives you three easy molecular recipes. This do-it-yourself kit will turn your kitchen into one of molecular gastronomy, which may prove more popular with your guests than avocado ale.

Belgium claims to be the country to have invented french fries. Now, they’ve created a coin-operated vending machine that dispenses fresh french fries made from gold-standard animal dripping and vegetable oil.

You may not have your own french fry vending machine, but you can bring another crispy treat into your home with The Original baconkit. Cure your own bacon, and enjoy tasty homemade bacon that won’t shrivel during cooking.


Which food trends do you have your eye on? Let me know in the comments.
