Food fads around the world

loukoumades | Jan 25, 2011 02:15 PM

I'm interested in hearing about food fads in countries around the world. Here in France the craze for verrines (serving dishes chopped up into little pieces layered in a glass) is thankfully slowing. Another big fad is savoury "cakes", like savoury quickbreads with bits of meat and cheese in them. And then there's macarons...

I read a lot about American food fads, gourmet food trucks, cake pops etc. But was wondering what fads exist in other countries. Anyone out there got some to tell me about?
