5 Most Interesting Trends at the 2013 Winter Fancy Food Show
2. Hemp: It's not just for smoking any more.
I recently tried and loved a dish of scalloped potatoes with hemp cream, so I was intrigued by the emergence of shelled hemp seeds this year. It is more of a textural experience (chewy and a bit like teeny-tiny quinoa) than a flavorful one (doesn't add any). You sprinkle them on your yogurt or fish like you would granola. Apparently, they're loaded with health benefits and give you sustained energy. And no, you won't get high off this stuff, so there's no point in adding it to those brownies.
