Time’s Picks for 2015

Time Magazine has identified their top food trends in their article titled “Here are the only 6 food trends you need to know for 2015.”

  2. Going Local with Meat – We’ve seen the rise of local raised meat and dairy in our restaurants, and Time expects that the trend is going to continue.
  3. Would You Like Insects? – You want to have some insects with your tacos?  They outnumber us a gazillion to one, after all… might as well eat them.

Fox News’ Take on 2015

The folks at Fox News took aim at the food industry with their article titled, “5 food trends that are bound to bug you in 2015.”
