Have you noticed how a trend just sneaks up on you and you think you are on to things but you realize you aren’t really?
Food trends in particular. From one day to the next, or that’s how it seems, every magazine, blogger, Instagram and FB post is talking about Pulled Everything. Pulled pork, lamb , chicken the list goes on. You race back to check your mags, bloggers Instagram and fb to see if you were out of the loop for a while. And you weren’t – and now everything is pulled. I do some quick reading only to find that nothing has changed, only the vocabulary- what is now pulled was Slow Roasted or Fall off the Bone.
Whew, sigh of relief, the food world didn’t change without me.
Don’t get me wrong, I love nothing more than a Slow Roasted leg of lamb, now a Pulled leg of lamb, with delicious Slow Roasted veggies ( I am guessing that veggies can’t be pulled?) with a rich sticky sauce with creamy Parmesan mash potatoes. Same goes for Pulled Pork on crispy thick white ciabatta.
What happened to Sun Dried?
