2015 Food and Culinary Trends to Watch

Get ready for all the 2015 food trend predictions.

I’ll do my typical recap, like I did last year:  Compilation of 2014 Food Trends.

So stay tuned for that.  In the meantime, here’s what I’ve spotted so far, along with links that you’ll find at the end.


Matcha green tea
Coconut sugar (and other sugar alternatives)
