One month down, eleven to go! Statistically, you’ve probably broken your resolution by now, so what better time to investigate why those new year diets never stick? This week, we bring you stories of how food is set to change in 2019. Eater’s Ryan Sutton shares his restaurant trends predictions (hint: a focus on regional Chinese cuisines). If you live in New York City, expect to see a change in street meat containers this year. The city has banned styrofoam! It’s great news for the environment, yet a costly transition for vendors. Finally, 2019 is bringing technological advances that could (literally) change the flavors of our food. We hear from scientists working to develop a spicy tomato using gene editing (also known as Crispr).
