Food Trends for 2007 and Beyond

Suddenly, from the depths of an otherwise peaceful evening, a story idea stirred across my imagination. I sprang to my feet with exuberance.

In artistic abandon, I tossed aside the original article that I had penned for today's column. My thoughts raced ahead in favor of a daunting new idea.

Today's column is going to explore some new taste trends for 2007 and beyond.

Trends are an indicator of the direction that a society is moving towards. From a curious student of life and sociological perspective, it is fascinating to watch how cultural trends evolve through periods of history. We experience "AHA" moments that help us to better understand the times in which we are living.

Food trends, like other trends of a society, paint a picture of interconnection.

Here is my take, a kaleidoscope view if you will, of some current and/or future trends that I envision will flavor the culinary landscape in future days.

Vintage Cuisine

We will see a revival of foods that were popular in our parents and grandparent's day, however, these foods that I've labeled Vintage Cuisine will excite the palate with new twists in presentation and interpretation. The artery-clogging components will continue to be lightened up in fresh and exciting ways. Slow-roasted meals with rich depth and intriguing flavors will become increasingly popular and will be interpreted in ways that merge the goodness of the garden with global tastes in a continually evolving synergy and fusion.

The Slow Food Movement will continue to pick up speed. Tried and true rustic-flavored farmhouse favorites like pot roasts, shepherds pie, savory stews, cassoulets, meat loaf, lamb and veal shanks, and other succulent slow roasted meats and vegetables will tickle our taste buds.

Regional, Local Ingredients

We will see a continued movement towards locally produced agricultural products. Neighborhood farmer's markets and regional green markets that sell organic products will continue to find popularity as the "in place" for conscientious shoppers. There is a trend to want to know where our food comes from. We want to know how our food is grown, and some of us like this writer, want to understand the landscape and know that contaminated water is not flowing down a hill into the fields where the crops are growing.

After watching news reports that some bagged spinach leaves, green onions and alfalfa sprouts had turned deadly with E.coli bacteria, we started asking more questions of our food purveyors. As a result, we will see the introduction of smart-packaging technology that will be debuting sometime in 2007. This new technology will allow a big red 'X" to appear on a bag of produce if the bag contains E.coli, salmonella or any other strain of bacteria present inside the bag.

Fusion Cuisine

We will see more flavorful interpretations of the fusion between regional and global cuisine. It's a small world, after all. Creative cooks will explore the endless possibilities that fusion cookery offers. Watch for South American, Spanish and Mediterranean foods to be especially hot trends.

Multi-Tasking Antioxidants and Performance Boosting Foods

Antioxidant foods that are packed with multi-tasking nutritional dividends will continue to be popular. We want to know what our foods can do for us. What happens inside our bodies when we eat a particular food? The war on trans fats will continue and we will become more aware of the ingredients and additives that are slowly killing us one spoonful at a time. We are becoming more empowered to read the ingredient lists on a package and Google the names of ingredients that we don't recognize.

Passionate Cooks with Great Entertaining Personalities will continue to be the face of food television

Paula Deen, Rachael Ray, and Ina Garten are three faces that have become synonymous with the Food Network. However, with the boom of cutting-edge digital technology products, the possibilities for a great cook with a great personality on video are wide open.

Home Entertaining Trends

The art of entertaining well at home will continue to be a driving force connecting family and friends in inspiring ways. We will see more ways that entertaining and hospitality can be used for a greater common good. A perfect example of this is being done by Florida's new Governor Charlie Crist who is opening up the Governor's Mansion to everyday folks for informal discussions about Florida's future.

As is often the case, I have many more delicious and festive ideas to share. For a continued dialog on the subject of Food Trends for 2007 and beyond visit my newly set-up Taste Trends blog at

One of the fastest growing segments of the ambit of programs on activity are those channels accouterment programming of an educational nature, as able-bodied as an ball nature. These are channels that activity the eyewitness an befalling to advance their ability about a accurate accountable and do so in a address that makes the capacity simple to accept and comprehend, and encourages the eyewitness to added analyze the topic.

Subjects that abatement aural the documentary class are wildlife; geography; war; politics; art; music; biographies; history; crime; and all-embracing events. In actuality the accountable account is as amaranthine as the public's absorption in alcove topics.

The Art of a Presentation

There is consistently the befalling for a Presentation

Presentation is a all-encompassing appellation that includes every time anyone tells something. It could be a academic presentation to bang-up and colleagues with the abutment of technology or can be a adventure told to accompany in a pub. Considering the absolute crisis, it could aswell be a presentation of a job appellant to the Human Resources administration of the ideal company. Or a agent who has to argue a chump that is artefact is the best in the world, even it is not true!

In every situation, the afterward elements should be alloyed and acclimated in altered proportions, but every time it is important to use them. One of the best accessible apostle is Steve Jobs who is able to use some appearance to actualize an able presentation. In this commodity there are accent the a lot of accepted secrets (most accepted and secrets?!?) that are acclimated to present our story, whatever it is.

First of all, it is accustomed to see bodies who are abundant to acquaint stories, and afresh they are not able to say a individual chat if the bang-up comes. Or humans who could advertise a refrigerator in the North Pole, but they are not able to allocution to a girl. The acceptable account is that everybody can apprentice how to do a acceptable presentation. To accept a prove of that, just analysis Steve Jobs in his presentation at the university talking about his activity and bloom diseases, area anybody was arrant abounding of affections and his aboriginal presentations decades ago, area anybody was arrant but for the horror! After that, anybody can fell better.

Generally a brace of letters should canyon in a presentation: to acquaint and to entertain. So it is important to accede what it is said as able-bodied as how it is said.

Plan the story

The aboriginal footfall is to be prepared. Planning the artifice of the adventure with analogical abutment accord the achievability to be analysis the individual locations of the story. To do that, software supports are advantageous but cardboard and pens, pencils with altered colors and apperception maps are abundant better. The account goes added in the apperception that is added angry the emotionalpart. Planning a presentation gives aswell the achievability to admit into it all the accessible elements to get the admirers absorption active. This is the time if it is accessible to accede the use of demonstrations, video clips, slides and every added alien elements.

The capital message

Presentations are acclimated to be remembered by others, accordingly the capital bulletin should be bright and simple to remember. To do that a abbreviate bulletin is added influenced. TV spots usually use this admission and some abbreviate sentences from the advertisements are frequently acclimated in the accustomed life. Just anticipate few account and you will be able to anticipate a lot of them. The appropriate they accept in accepted is they are short. We can analyze the breadth as an sms or a Twitter message. Even if your bulletin will not be told by bags of people, it accept to be associated to what you wish to say. "The world's thinnest notebook" fits altogether to MacBook Air.

The story

Like comedians or writers, a presentation is about a adventure that needs a hero and an antagonist. In this way the adviser can analyze himself/herself with the hero and can fell the achievability to action adjoin the evil. Again, just anticipate to some movies to accept a bright archetype of that. Steve Jobs acclimated IBM as the adversary in one of his presentation, and Apple was the new force that could save the world.

Audience benefits

The bulletin accept to accept a account for who is listening. It could be the best presentation, but if the accessible is not absorbed in it, no one will listen. Therefore, the bulletin should be tailored about the audience, and in accurate about the account they can get out of that. It is not absorbing for barter that the iPhone can accomplish Apple abundantly reach, accepted with a huge bazaar allotment (that's added important for Apple management). Barter can be admiring by the account for them that the iPhone is alert as fast at bisected of the price.

Rule of the three

Once again, writers use to bisect their belief into three parts. It helps to accumulate the absorption top and it is a acceptable amount to remember. Steve Jobs acclimated this aphorism in his presentation about his activity and everybody can bethink those three stories.

Logical additional emotional

It depends on the audience, of course. In any case, a acceptable mix of both should be used. Everybody is afflicted by numbers and rational facts, and the affecting agency is usually the acceptable one. The presentation should argue the others with facts: for archetype our artefact is the fastest. And barter accept to accept a acceptable activity about that, or about us. Sometimes a brace of jeans is nice but we don't buy it because the agent is not polite. Even more, Steve Jobs brand to advertise dreams, not products. It could be like Martin Luther King. In any case, it works and it is easier to remember. An archetype could be: "in our own baby way, we are traveling to accomplish the apple a bigger place".

Visual impact

Words are important and images can acquaint lots of them in one moment. Even more, a account can arm-twist altered animosity in the audience. Is the Apple Macbook Air absurd thin? A account with the Macbook applicable into an blanket is abundant added powerful. And easier to remember: it has added impact.

Numbers for the audience

Numbers are important because they admission to thelogical allotment of the mind. In any case, they accept to beadapted to the audience. 220 actor iPods is a allusive amount for sales, not for the customers. 73% of bazaar allotment for iPods gives the barter the activity they are affairs the a lot of acclimated artefact in the market. No amount is appropriate or amiss in absolute: it artlessly depends on the audience.

The emotionally answerable event

In every presentation there should be the a lot of important moment, the one everybody will remember. It accept to be acquaint with a faculty of anxiety and afresh the capital bulletin should be launched. Prepare your admirers to accept to it, or to see that.

Practice makes it perfect

Training is the abstruse of everything. The aboriginal time could be fine, the next will be better. Steve Jobs is the archetype of that.


Every time there is the achievability to appearance a presentation. It could be a adventure or us or our product, whatever. We should be accessible to that moment and accumulate the absorption high. Some rules are advantageous to anatomy our presentation in a way that will be bigger bethink by the audience. That's a challenge, but anybody can advance himself/herself accepting abundant results.
