Munchies: 2014 Food Trends

Legalized cities like Portland, DC, and the soon-to-be Chicago can expect good food alongside good cannabis. Forbes Travel Guide rounded up a group of top chefs throughout the nation to predict the food trends to come in 2014.

It seems Portland natives like to pair their smoke with bourbon and that's not going to change any time soon, according to Jenn Louis, chef and owner of Portland's Lincoln Restaurant and Sunshine Tavern. She hopes to see more offal -- or what Anthony Bourdain refers to as the "nasty bits" -- offcuts such as tripe, kidneys, and heart in the new year.

Meanwhile in Chicago, Midwesterners can legally buy medical marijuana starting Jan. 1. They will also grub on oysters, kale, and craft cocktails according to chefs Graham Elliot and Fabio Viviani.

And what does Washington, DC chef Jose Andres want more of? Beans. Apparently he's really excited about them.
