It’s tempting to chase food trends. They’re splashy, enticing, and they photograph well. Sure, you might want to taste a rainbow bagel once or twice, but do you really want to settle down with it? Can some crazy overloaded milkshake truly please you the way an old fashioned Frosty can?

The trend-ization of food has certainly changed the game for chefs. They can’t just think about running restaurants anymore, they have to think about how each dish connects on social media. Not surprisingly, most of the chefs we know are a little burnt out on the whole deal. So when we asked them which trends they’d like to skewer, they were more than happy to oblige.
