Salted Caramel and pulled pork.

Delicious but everywhere.

Anything to add?

Anything pan fried

Scallops

Sous vide. If you are a Masterchef Professional. With foams and gels.

Heritage fucking carrots.

ephemeralfairy Fri 26-Dec-14 22:15:26

Street food of any genre and craft beer.

Artisan bollocks. If I see another artisan sausage roll I will punch it to death.

pan fried... where else would you fry food if not in a pan? I don't get it confused

Sun blazed tomatoes. The even more upmarket version of sun dried tomatoes.

Restaurant serving only cereal. At £3 a bowl hmm
Artisan bakeries - even our local Tesco has one (or so it claims)

Old ice cream vans and camper vans selling coffee

Gourmet popcorn

ahahahha at Sun Blazed. We are all laughing our heads off at that one.

DS says you cannot have salt & vinegar crisps anymore... they must be sea salt and malt or balsamic wankery.

Pomegranate

ChippyMinton Fri 26-Dec-14 22:21:36

caramel wafers softening on top of your artisan coffee
Tunnocks teacakes

ChippyMinton Fri 26-Dec-14 22:22:45

coconut water <bleah>

HowsTheSerenity Fri 26-Dec-14 22:24:04

Paleo everything

thenightsky Fri 26-Dec-14 22:26:17

And... food served on slates or in buckets or anywhere but on plates.

Hassled Fri 26-Dec-14 22:32:34

And salted caramel. Delicious, but it's bloody everywhere.

Sprink Fri 26-Dec-14 22:38:54

Culinary cocktails, i.e., those made with savoury ingredients or Christmassy flavours such as mince pie syrup. Please let it be a fad.

DoJo Fri 26-Dec-14 22:40:26

pan fried... where else would you fry food if not in a pan? I don't get it

In a deep fat fryer I think.

TheWitTank Fri 26-Dec-14 22:41:31

Christmas themed coffees. Toffee Lattes etc. Everywhere.

avocadotoast Fri 26-Dec-14 22:42:28

Pulled pork. Fuck offfff. Most the time it's not even nice.

Oh and brioche buns. I like them, I really do, but they are the biggest cliche. Just give me a burger and shut up.

ChippyMinton Fri 26-Dec-14 22:43:52

Drinks served in JAM JARS FFS.
And tied around with butchers twine.

ephemeralfairy Fri 26-Dec-14 22:45:18

Oh god coconut water....eurgh. Only good when mixed with a hefty measure of vodka.

Hazchem Fri 26-Dec-14 22:49:23

and not just jam jars ChippyMinton Jam jars with fucking handles, it never was a jam jar, it's a mug made to look like a jam jar, it's shit to drink out of it, crap to hold and it just wanky bollocks. Just use a mug or a glass.
