As everyone knows, food trends come and go. However, there are some food and cooking trends that quickly catch on and become part of our eating lifestyle. Sometimes the popular food item is a remake of old fashioned stand-by recipes. While at other times a food trend can be something completely different and sometimes even outrageous.
Grilled is Back

For instance, according to Huffpost Taste, the rainbow grilled cheese is finally making a debut in the US. This delightful and colorful grilled sandwich is filled with gooey multi colored cheeses of varying flavors like basil (green), lavender (blue), tomato (red) and the yellow for a combo of cheeses such as cheddar, mozzarella, and gruyere.
In addition, all grilled foods and grill cooking appliances are the rise for this summer’s festivities.
