Ten Predictions for 2013 That are Almost as Exciting as a Kardashian-West Baby
7. Pizza Hut stops dilly-dallying around about it and stuffs an entire pig into a pizza. "Pig-stuffed pan crust."
8. A pickling food trend? Really? Pickling was created to preserve food that's out of season and, mostly, as a matter of survival. Pickling has its place in the world, but not as an entire trend. The coup will be if there's a pickling food truck.
9. On that note, some predict food trucks will begin to fade this year. I hope not. They definitely serve a purpose in many situations. And, like anything else, if the truck is run well (that implies good food), then they'll be successful. I just pity the operators. Seems like an exhausting job.
10. Anthony Bourdain continues to be Anthony Bourdain. I'm way behind the curve here as I don't watch a lot of the tele, but he did a live chat on Gawker recently where he rapid-fired off-the-cuff responses and dodged no bullets, including this:
I'm averse to clean, well organized and functioning societies. Just the way I am. I tend towards hot, messy, dysfunctional ones that barely hold together -- with spicy food, palm trees, (and) passion.
