Top 10 things you will love in 2013

Top 10 things you will love in 2013

The 10 best food things for 2013 and it does not include a sous-vide. It is ok if you want to retitle this piece as predictions for 2013. I am new to forecasting, but that doesn’t mean I’m a novice. Get back to me at the end of the year and we’ll see how I did.

1. Cast-iron cookware

Le Creuset is ok, but I talking about the cookware you have to season, wash correctly and that gets passed down.

tomato knife

2. Tomato Knife

I bet you didn’t know you needed one of these, but as they say you need the right tool for the right job. Not only will this knife keep you from butchering those tomatoes, but it will keep your other knives sharper, longer.

jackfruit

3. Pulled Jackfruit

What can I say you haven’t lived until you’ve had a pulled jackfruit sandwich, bbq style.

4. Kimchi

The last time, I was at Centre Point buying glass noodles, I decided while I’m here, I may as well pick up some kimchi. Everyone of those foil sealed packs had either fish sauce or msg or both as an ingredient. I asked the guy behind the counter why they were no longer stocking vegan and msg-free foil packaged kimchi. He said go make your own – I just might do that.

5. Sofrito

So Free Toh – it sounds great, so naturally it makes everything taste great. It’s the base for Caribbean, Latin American, and Spanish cooking and where so many good things start.

6. Picked everything – Just kidding!

Nothing against Branston Pickled Onions, but I’m talking about the ones that are best eaten the week they are made.

sriracha sauce

7. Sriracha – Riding the Red Rooster

Sriracha pancakes, sriracha hummus, sriracha ice cream ?!? just maybe the secret sauce you’ve been looking for. This garlic chili sauce is of Thai origin, but is found in most Asian grocery stores.

cinnamon rolls

8. Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon is good for you; cinnamon rolls not so good, but do you need an excuse to eat cinnamon rolls – me thinks not.

crock pot

9. Crockpot vs. Pressure Cooker

Again, this is a case of using the right tools for the right job, but some folks swear by one or the other so I’m going to leave this one up to you.

10. Sharp knives

There are some beautiful high spec Japanese cooks knives, but you will never go wrong with a good Sabatier or Swiss make Victorinox. You can never have enough knives, but make sure they are kept nice and sharp. Remember, a dull knife is a dangerous knife.
