First of all, the WTF trend:
Hamburger and hot dog. They have always been around, but now Parisian hipsters are making them hip without improving their taste.

Now the let's-hope-this-becomes-a-trend trend:
Fish and chips, as done by Dans Les Landes et co.

Taste trends:
- Espelette pepper is welcome to linger
- Terre et mer - meat&seafood combo dishes - is seen more and more. The way Jégo does it, it is a blast of surprise in all the right ways.
- Foam, yuzu and pumpkin soup are yester-me, yester-you, yesterday. I personally hope they will be replaced by Cambodian (kampoc) pepper and Shaoxing wine (in marinade or sauce), but no one asked me.

The trend we love:
Japanese chefs doing their take on French cuisine. They seem to be all good. And this trend is not just a Parisian thAng, but all over France. Yessss !

Sur ce, Bonne Année, good eats !
