Kitchen Sync: 009

Show Notes

Future-gazing in three stories:

  1. Hospitalityandcateringnews,com runs with the latest trend report from J. Walter Thompson entitled 'The Future of Food and Drink'. Don't believe the hype, I say.
  2. The NRA (National Restaurant Association, that is) surveyed members of the American Culinary Federation on which culinary themes will be hot trends on restaurant menus in 2015. They may as well have asked the real NRA.
  3. The New York Times asks if this is The Restaurant of the Future? It could be if they ditch the qinao.
