  1. Trend No. 1: Cauliflower as the new Kale

    Cauliflower has been predicted by various food blogs as the new ~seriously everywhere~ vegetable, with appearances ranging from mashed "potatoes" to vegan "chicken wings." Will 2017 finally be our cruciferous underdog's turn to shine?

  1. Trend No. 2: Drones as the future of food delivery

    Feeling like pizza, sushi, or even bottle service? Drones are now delivering! And before you ask why, ask yourself why not? Expedient service, zero operator to tip, and a cold six-pack that could be delivered straight to your front door... Seriously, what's not to love?

  1. Trend No. 3: TACO FEVER.

    Tacos everywhere! And no longer just when you're getting Mexican. From Kalbi to Ice Cream, tacos are literally entering the realms of every single type of cuisine. Taco 'bout that!

  1. Trend No. 4: Zero-waste cooking.

    Food waste and sustainability has been a HUGE ongoing issue. To tackle this, some chefs have developed recipes incorporating whole ingredients... Say hello to carrot-top pestos, broccoli stem tacos, corn-husk stock broths, and many more!

  1. Trend No. 5: Jackfruit as a meatless alternative.

    This delicious South Asian fruit will no longer just be a smoothie option at your local Pho. The firm but stringy texture, said to resemble pulled pork, have many rejoicing as they recreate their favourite meat dishes sans the meat..

  1. Trend No. 6: Cannabis-infused foods.

    With an increasing number of states legalizing recreational marijuana and Trudeau promising Canadians the same, it's only natural that some chefs have already begun to experiment. Are you here for the oncoming rise of edibles?

  1. And finally... Trend No. 7: Insects as a protein source.

    High in protein, full of essential nutrients, cheap, sustainable, and easily available... Just get over the fact that they're bugs, and hey, what's not to love?!
