Kale is on it's way out! Yeah yeah you love Kale.. and you love kale chips and kale quinoa and kale hummus and everything else with kale.. but you have to admit you're tired of hearing about Kale. It's just like Malbec. Delicious but it's jumped the shark and it's time to jump on the next best thing in culinary delights.
I keep hearing locally sourced repeated over and over- it's hip and trendy and it's great for the local economy. I want to know where my food comes from and finding it local through a CSA or farmers market or co-op helps me get great produce, meat and dairy that is local to Lincoln and allows me to pass that along to my customers.
So what's really hot for 2016? Well besides locally sourced food, ancient grains such as spelt and amaranth will be making an appearance on our plates in restaurants across the nations as well as African cuisine and Middle Eastern condiments. Spelt, a grain cultivated since 5000 BC was a staple in the bronze age has a rich nutty flavor, can be found at local co-ops here in town and is best enjoyed in bread, crackers and pastry.
