Setting the context for a discussion on trends in food and eating in 2017, Nation’s Best wrote, “Americans have always been fond of food. That’s no secret. But it runs much deeper than that, and there’s evidence to suggest that nearly all Americans are now foodies in at least some capacity. As Jane Sarasohn-Kahn explains in The Huffington Post, US consumers are taking a different approach to how they spend their hard-earned money. Rather than spending it on more “stuff,” they’re spending it on experiences, with food being a top experience-spending category.” Check out their summary of trends, including the closing of the historic Carnegie Deli in NYC, Junior’s on Instagram, the blurring of breakfast and lunch, the importance of authenticity and provenance for food, and Millennials’ major food-spending.
