Are Macarons Passé?

According to The Dominion Post – Your Weekend Magazine and many of their fairfax cohorts – macarons, salted caramel and mason jar glasses are all so common that they are no longer cool.

Personally, I have to say I love macarons and the last one I had was from McDonalds, I  had to try them.  Although the colours were fantastic,   and it looked perfectly formed, I didn’t really find it had much flavour.

Salted Caramel is one of my favourites, if it is on the menu I will always go for it!  I recently made the fabulous beetroot salted caramel chocolate cake the features in the Little and Friday celebrations book.  It was divine, short on time and lacking multiple cake tins of the same size, I cooked the cake as one and cut it in half. It’s very rich, but oh so yum.

I’ve never been a fan of faux anything…trying too hard just isn’t cool!

Sourdough definitely has a time and a place, I personally love it plain with a smear of butter or dipped in good quality olive oil with balsamic or duhka – but are they passé too?

What trends need to die?  What is the new food trend? What needs to be brought back?
