In our seventh episode, we ponder the future foods of 2017 with Peter Meehan, executive editor at Lucky Peach; Matthew Card, food editor at Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street and regular panelist and cookbook author Ivy Manning.

The sea will be a theme for the coming year thanks to the two current darlings of the dining industry. Will nutritious, savory and sustainably farmed sea vegetables supplant kale? And poke, the cured fish dish from Hawaii, is enjoying a moment.

Our panelists are torn as to whether to embrace the poke trend, but they’ve got some ideas of their own. Tune in to hear what you’ll be eating and drinking in the coming year.
