In the spirit of the New Year , we've done plenty of reflecting on the headlines and highlights of 2009 , including the biggest food trends at the end of the decade .
Now it's time to weigh in on the coming year. I've got more than enough predictions for what's going to blow up over the next 12 months. Among my guesses: Ramen will have its day, only to be pushed aside by pho; unctuous beef tendon will replace overdone pork belly; and macarons  will upstage mini cupcakes. Other things that will go mainstream: sustainable seafood , chicharrones , castelvetranos , tamales, neo tiki  culture, yakitori , and anything that ends in "wurst."
What are your predictions?
