Chefs Predict Top Menu Trends for 2012

In a survey of nearly 1,800 chefs who belong to the American Culinary Federation, conducted from October–November 2011 by the National Restaurant Association, locally sourced meats and seafood was the top trend predicted for 2012, followed by locally sourced produce.

Hyper-local items, such as ingredients from restaurants’ own gardens, rank fourth on the list, and a third of chefs at full-service restaurants who were surveyed said they had gardens on-site.

The top 20 predicted hot menu trends are:

1. Locally sourced meats and seafood
2. Locally grown produce
3. Healthful kids’ meals
• McDonalds increases commitment to a more healthful menu
4. Hyper-local
5. Sustainability as a culinary theme
6. Children’s nutrition as a culinary theme
7. Gluten-free/food allergy-conscious items
• Menus friendlier to diners on restricted diets
8. Locally produced wine and beer
• Locavore movement heads to the bar
9. Sustainable seafood
10. Whole-grain items in kids’ meals
11. Newly fabricated cuts of meat, such as the pork flat iron and the beef petit tender
12. Farm/estate-branded items
13. Food trucks/street food
14. Artisan spirits
15. House-made/artisan ice cream
16. Health/nutrition as a culinary theme
17. Non-traditional fish
18. Fruit/vegetable kids’ side items
19. Children’s mini-meals (i.e. smaller versions of adult menu items)
20. Culinary cocktails

Chefs across the country increasingly used local ingredients throughout 2011. Andrew Little of Sheppard Mansion in Hanover, Pa., cooked beef from a herd of Scotch Highland cattle raised by the property’s owners.

Among those experimenting with their own gardens was Bryan Voltaggio, chef-owner of Volt in Frederick, Md., who planted a garden next to his fine-dining restaurant. The former Top Chef contestant also announced plans for a full farm to be situated next to a diner on a property his business partners bought in Frederick earlier this year.

Chipotle Mexican Grill, the 1,100-unit fast-casual chain that markets itself as serving “food with integrity,” increased its commitment to serving more local food this year. In June it said it would double the amount of locally grown food it served. It said it planned to use 10 million pounds of produce from farms that were within 350 miles of the restaurants where they were served.

Food Trends 2013: Push-Pop Cakes and Boozy Bar Food Make List

As 2012 comes to a close, here are some of the delicious food and drink predictions for the upcoming year compiled by Andrew Freeman & Co., a California consulting firm. Take a look at some of the new and continuing trends we'll see in 2013.

Next time you order popcorn, the bartender might check for identification. At Perbacco in San Francisco, Campari-infused popcorn was created for a Campari-sponsored party. At the Stinky Cheese Shop in Brooklyn, the Harpersfield Double Soak is a cow's milk cheese soaked twice in local beers.

Push-pops aren't just for frozen desserts. The plastic containers are now housing cupcakes, making them easier to eat than ever before. New York City's Go Cakes serves flavors like green velvet or confetti with choices of frosting and toppings.

Toast isn't toast. Crostini, pieces of toast slathered with anything from cheese to meat, are popping up on menus across the country. The one- to two-bite snacks can be sweet or savory. Fig and Olive restaurant in West Hollywood, Calif., serves a dessert "crostini" made with Amarena cherry and mascarpone on pistachio shortbread.

Gluten-free isn't just a fad. In an effort to accommodate clients, restaurants are offering gluten-free alternatives. The Fairmont hotel chain offers a Lifestyle Cuisine Plus program with specialized menus for those who eat gluten-free. The White Barn Inn in Kennebunk, Maine, sells gluten-free baked goods made by a local bakery. Casa Nonna, an Italian restaurant in New York City, offers a special menu for diners that includes gluten-free penne. Chefs are also experimenting with grains like bulgar and quinoa as a new update to rice or pasta.

Drink your vegetables. From cocktails to cleanses, it's time to dust off the juicers. Kale, beet or celery juices are appearing in cleanses from Blueprint or in cocktails at the Trencherman in Chicago. Liquiteria in New York City is a popular juice bar with a cult celebrity following.
