Burrata Peach Salad

Each year we see a new list of food trends. Some of these new trends I’m excited about year after year and then are others that I can’t wait to vanish. I’ll keep mum on the ones that I dislike.

This is one food trend movement that I can stand behind, and I hope to see more restaurants with this concept.

What kid needs to eat just macaroni and cheese as their meal? NONE
