According to the National Restaurant Association, small plates, locally sourced and organic ingredients, sustainable seafood, energy cocktails, artisanal beers and spirits, and salts are in for 2007. Out: Asparagus, rice, cakes, pies, gin and vermouth (The martinis? No!). The organization asked 1,282 chefs, members of the American Culinary Federation, to rate 194 items as "hot", "cool/passe" and "perennial favorite" in October. Also not hot: Saying cool or passe. [NRA]
