Posted on: January 5, 2010

The Food Channel® editorial staff compiled a look back at the last decade in food, identifying the biggest trends and influencers.

“Our chefs and editorial staff have seen a lot of changes in the last ten years,” said Kay Logsdon, Managing Editor of The Food Channel. “Food has become a story like never before, and it’s interesting to look back at how its growth has impacted our society. Over the last few years, we’ve been able to visit restaurant after restaurant, attend the biggest food shows, and try new products, giving our editors a first-hand look at what’s been happening with food.”

According to editors, the top trends overall for the last decade (2000-2009) include—
·         Sushi
·         Bacon
·         Cupcakes
·         Sliders
·         Gourmet Burgers made with Kobe or Angus Beef
·         Superfruits such as Acai, Pomegranate and Blueberry
·         Oils, such as olive oils and truffle oils
·         Whole grains, such as Kashi, polenta, risotto
·         Artisan foods, particularly in breads, cheeses and dark chocolates
·         Coffees, teas

Logsdon emphasized that all of the lists are compiled as opinion, and are not necessarily based in scientific evidence. “We did this to create dinner table conversation as much as anything,” she said. “Food is a natural meeting place, regardless of your political, religious or personal preferences—you can always talk about food.”
