Speaking of new food trends, here's a new book on the topic.
Cooking for Geeks: Real Science, Great Hacks, and Good Food, by Jeff
Are you interested in the science behind what happens to the food in
your kitchen? Do you want to learn what makes a recipe work so you can
improvise instead of simply following a set of instructions? More
than just a cookbook, Cooking for Geeks applies your curiosity to
discovery, inspiration, and invention in the kitchen. It's an
excellent and intriguing resource for anyone who wants to experiment
with cooking, even if you don't consider yourself a geek.
It's out this week. You can see it on Amazon.

I just heard him on NPR Science Friday
August 6, 2010
In Cooking for Geeks: Real Science, Great Hacks, and Good Food,
software engineer Jeff Potter discusses using the hacker mindset in
the kitchen, from cooking salmon in the dishwasher to a warranty-
voiding experiment on his oven to get the scorching temperatures
necessary for perfect pizza crust. Story can be listened to after 6PM
today if you miss the broadcast.
Sounds like fun
