Fir Sure, Fir Sure

165676!1161-15247  I was about to scoff at Packaged Facts new trend report, “Extreme and Edgy Flavors” until I clicked through (reading helps sometimes). No, yuzu, wasabi and tamarind aren’t particularly edgy.

Sea buckthorn and Douglas Fir, though? The Noma effect has begun and as you may (though probably don’t) know, I really, really don’t like the idea of pine-flavored food. I’m very resistant (I still haven’t given in to jeggings or watched that Rebecca Black video, so I know how to be strong) and refuse to believe conifer cuisine will go mainstream. Though if it takes hold anywhere it will be Portland–the Douglas Fir, is the Oregon state tree, after all.

Let’s talk when pine needles trickle down into Denny’s sundaes, bacon-style.
