One of the strangest food trends will be the revival of savory gelatin dishes, called “aspic.” These dishes, often made from jellied meat broths and containing meats, fruits and vegetables, were once popular in the Americas and Europe, but have long fallen into disfavor.

Nonetheless, in the next few years you will start seeing aspic dishes appearing in fine-dining restaurants, and the trend will soon move to fast food and home cooking. People will bring aspic dishes to parties, and some of the more adventurous will compete to create the most outrageous aspic dishes.
