For all you doubters out there who believed that “bacon” was about to jump the shark, had best rethink their naysaying ways.  According to the Food Channel ( “bacon” isn’t just a trending topic for the year, but for the whole decade.  (That’s ten years to you and me, kids.)

The top ten trends for 2000-2009 were:

  • Sushi
  • Cupcakes
  • Sliders
  • Gourmet Burgers made with Kobe or Angus Beef
  • Superfruits such as Acai, Pomegranate and Blueberry
  • Oils, such as olive oils and truffle oils
  • Whole grains, such as Kashi, polenta, risotto
  • Artisan foods, particularly breads, cheeses and dark chocolate
  • Coffees, teas

Anybody else notice that ALL these items go well with bacon?  Hmmm?  (“Nope,” you say?  Try wrapping some Angus Beef around a blueberry and then get back to me how that worked out for you…)

And “bacon” didn’t stop there.  Its bar was set high these past ten years.  “Bacon” was also named as a “Top Flavor” for the decade:

  • Pomegranate
  • Wasabi
  • Cranberry
  • Ginger
  • Blueberry
  • Hibiscus
  • Green tea
  • Dark chocolate
  • Mint

Take note:  Bacon is the only meat on this list.  (Go “bacon”!  It’s your birthday!) The ONLY thing wrong with this list is that “hibiscus” beat “bacon.”   (What’s next?  Dandelion?  Rag Weed?  Eye of newt?)  So there’s the goal for the next decade.  Let’s bring bacon up the list and leave “hibiscus” in the dust.  Where it belongs.  Literally.

    We had a knife skills class with a snooty chef who said that truffle oil is the ketchup of the middle class. I don't think he meant it as a compliment.

    Excellent issues?I’d be aware that as any individual who really doesn’t write on blogs so much (in fact, this may be my first post), I don’t think the term ‘lurker’ is very becoming to a non-posting reader. It’s no longer your fault in the slightest degree , however most likely the blogosphere could come up with a greater, non-creepy title for the 90% of us that enjoy reading the content material .
