The folks at Food Network recently released their Top 100 Recipes of 2007. After a quick glance, I’d love to know what factors determined the list, but I’m guessing it was the most downloaded recipes from their site visitors.
Interestingly enough, macaroni and cheese appears twice in the Top 10, and four times overall. And interesting still is what this list tells us about the eating habits of Americans … are we all just looking for comfort in food? Looking to recreate recipes that we grew up eating at our parents’ dining room table? Just looking for fast and easy fare to throw down? Overall, with a surprisingly limited amount of ethnic choices on the list and a preponderance of chicken recipes making the cut, where does that leave our generation of “foodies?” Out in the cold, or just not watching Food Network?
Kate from Accidental Hedonist recently spoke on this very topic, and you can read her piece and the lively comments that followed right here.
It would be an interesting challenge to cook your way through the 100 recipes … oh to have the time! In the meantime, you can take a gander yourself right here.
