Savory yogurt. Butter and full-fat dairy. Mini vegetables. 'New' whole grains such as freekeh. More pop-up restaurants from big-name chefs trying out new concepts.
Those are some of the trends in food for 2015, according to Here & Now resident chef Kathy Gunst and Associated Press food editor J.M. Hirsch.
The two foodies tell host Jeremy Hobston that they spot trends by reading everything they can about food, eating at restaurants and talking to people at grocery stores.
