IN THE KITCHEN
1. White foods. Think eggplant, asparagus, beets, ginger and anchovies.
2. Soul food.
3. Sea salts. A sprinkling from oceans the world over.
4. Bison. The hot low-fat meat.
5. Big beans. Especially giant white limas. (See, white again!)
6. More artisanal American foods. Olive oils, breads and cheeses.
7. Tandoor ovens. Now for home cooks.
8. Slow-roasted everything.
9. Tentacles. As in octopus and squid.
