Summertime Trending Food
Posted on: May 25, 2015

If you’ve noticed that this year’s summer food trends seem to be traveling back in time, you’ve got a keen eye (or stomach, maybe) for tasty trends. Bakers, chefs and restaurateurs are pushing comfort food — apple pie, grilled cheese, Belgian waffles — and other reminiscent-of-childhood dishes done with a modern twist (wrapped in bacon, dipped in Sriracha). It’s only a matter of time before we start to see boutique Jell-O salad shops and food trucks selling Vienna sausages and deviled eggs.

This year’s summertime beverage trends are all about micro-distilled an artisan spirits plus, of course, locally brewed beers. Small, local distilleries and microbreweries have seen a massive spike in the past several seasons, allowing them to expand their operations and offer dozens of new and desirable drinks. This shift has inspired other drink-related trends, like “new-make” spirits, especially whiskey that has been quickly aged, and food-brew pairings listed on menus.
