The #1 Food Trend of 2013

According to the folks over at Huffington Post, smoke, is forecasted to be the number 1 trend for foodies in 2013. This flavor is showing up in more places than meat! It is being used creatively in everything from beverages to desserts. The Huffington Post article also mentions the industry leaders at New York Times, The Food Channel, Bon Appetit, and Baum + Whiteman affirming the trend and its versatile new applications.

If you are looking to be on the leading edge of culinary creativity, but aren't too eager to start a bonfire or drag out the smoker in the middle of winter, we suggest trying Wright's Liquid Smoke. Flavors include Applewood, Hickory, and Mesquite.

Find your favorite recipe and incorporate this hearty grilled flavor or try this one from our friends at Wright's.
