The Cooking Channel, a baby sibling to Food TV Network is making its mark showcasing food crafters from around the nation. The old fashioned approach to bring freshness and flavor to the community has observed a rebirth in the form of homemade foods with a contemporary touch.

The sagging U.S. economy has motivated the creativity of many foodies who by no means thought about taking a family members heirloom recipe from kitchen to market. Home-based food processing businesses are popping up all over the U.S. as well as the products are amazingly uncomplicated but sophisticated in taste and texture.

The home-based food crafters of these days aren’t in it to get rich swift but to build a brand and grow to be the “Bush Beans” or “Sara Lee” of tomorrow. Food entrepreneurs at this year’s Fancy Food Show in New York showcased every thing from gourmet salt, an appropriate product since Kraft has announced it is going to decrease sodium by 10% for North American brands by 2012 thereby giving the consumer a healthy choice.

In tracking the food crafters for the last ten years the prediction for 2011 is simplicity, great items in little packages. Food entrepreneurs are additional calculating, seeking product ideas that will once more shake consumer taste buds and supply up miniature desserts, breads and delicately flavored baked goods, snacks and condiments stressing high quality over convenience.

1. Low sodium seasoning mixes are still common along with curry spice mixes and adobe mixes. Regrettably none of the Asian Mixes have produced significant headway with the American consumer.

2. Chocolate truffles are here to stay, for a even though that is certainly, particularly if the economy continues to dip into a black (dark chocolate) whole. There truly is nothing much more satisfying than good chocolate.

3. We also can’t leave out those super flavorful snack foods like popcorn, baked potato chips and assorted nuts tossed in a number of herbs and spices. The key here is less salt and much more flavor.

4. Natural sweeteners are going to create an awesome comeback within the form of all natural candies and snack bars filled with nuts, seeds, dried fruits, nut butters and even chocolate.

5. Desserts are about to be reduced drastically in size. It really is not longer fashionable to super-size anything. There will likely be no huge chunks of cake or pie except in cheesy diners.

6. The year 2011 is also give method to the introduction of miniature loaves of bread. The kind of loaf that will serve 2 to 4 very easily; since the concept of “waste not want not” will likely be on the rise.

7. Bakers will start seeking to the international market for unusual flavors and products. Many European sweets will probably be introduced like cream horns and fruit tarts using exotic fruits. The skyrocketing price of food toward the mid 2011 is going to leave consumers who can afford these sweet treasures looking for foods which are totally outside the box in both taste and texture.

Finally the last three gourmet foods for next year is going to be in the form of beverages; fruit juices, energy drinks and “all-natural” beverages that can take the place of breakfast and lunch. It is unfortunate, but next year Americans will finally be eating less, not by choice but out of necessity.
