A yearly trip to New York City provides clues as to what is going on in food trends. Stuff that starts here tends to spread across the continent over the year. Here are the big ideas I saw in 2016.
Social media digitally connects us to the world's latest news and trends. All of this is convenient, but I believe it comes at a cost -- the loss of what I like to call "the human connection."

When I shop, I want to know how the pieces I like are made. I look at the tag. I ask where the fabrics are from. I read about the designer. These details reveal the process of a piece that earns a hanger in my closet.
