The next big thing will be simple foods that taste delicious and are easy to make.
That was the message from the fourth annual The Next Big Bite trends event presented October 1 by Les Dames d’Escoffier New York (LDNY). The event, held at The New York Law School in New York, paired lauded culinary experts with rising stars in four one-on-one conversations designed to reveal what we’ll cook, eat, drink and crave in 2019. Joe Yonan, food editor of The Washington Post, served as master of ceremonies.
“We’re recovering from an age of too muchery,” said speaker Molly Yeh, host of Food Network’s “Girl Meets Farm.” Yeh was paired in a “bite” with Carla Hall. The other pairs included Jacques Pépin and Gesine Bullock-Prado, Lettie Teague and Natalka Burian, and Christina Tosi and Dorie Greenspan.
Industry leaders Christina Tosi and Dorie Greenspan discussed the topic of what we’ll crave. Among their baking and dessert tips-
- Baking will get simpler – we’ll crave making a nice cookie with a twist versus a complicated croquembouche
- We’ll see comfort-food classics with unexpected ingredients to make them pop
- Learn the rules first. Then break them and have fun.
