Big Beans
Let’s get this out of the way: With the economic downturn likely to continue through much of 2009, home cooking, of course, will be hot, so we’ll continue to see a rise in demand for easy, comforting recipes (if ever there was a time for the return of the casserole, this is it) and beginner cooking classes; big beans will be big (wherever you once saw baby limas, you’ll start seeing jumbo butter beans instead); and demand will increase for “necessary luxuries”—chocolate, wine, spirits, etc.—as a way for people to compensate for fewer meals out.
