Foods follow trends just like anything else we have choices with. I remember last year there was a big deal over the hot new item in Bon Apetit magazine. I haven't seen it if they have listed one for 2011, so I thought I would ask the question here. What is your current (not neccessarly new) favorite food or ingredient? Something you absolutely LOVE - whether you keep it for a special treat or it is something you just can NOT live without. Last year the Sriracha hot sauce was the big splash. It is a hot sauce that we have ALL come to LOVE! It has heat, though isn't super hot, and it has a lot of flavor. Unlike many of the hot sauces, it isn't just heat. It also doesn't cause the digestive unpleasantness that some of the others cause. Another great thing is that it is so reasonably priced - it is around $3 here for a 17 oz bottle. If you have a hard time finding it, check the asian food section - that is where our Walmarts have it, instead of the mexican food or ketchup areas. Anyway, that is our last "fave" food/ingredient. What is YOUR favorite food or ingredient? What is your favorite way to prepare it and/or your favorite food to serve with it?
