How did people cope in those days before the internet? Before we knew which salad dressing was tearing celebrity relationships apart, or before Emily Mariko taught the world how to microwave rice? They must have been starved for culinary creativity and novelty as they sat, crying into an oatcake, reading the newspaper that made no mention of butter boards. Nowadays, internet food fads are everywhere, and we can only imagine a world without them. Some emerge out of celebrity drama, others are genuinely appealing (if a little bit odd); here are the trends currently on the social media circuit.

Negroni Sbagliato

A clip from an interview between House of the Dragon stars Emma D’Arcy and Olivia Cooke started circulating recently and six words captivated the world: “a Negroni… Sbagliato… with Prosecco in it.” Nothing new to long-time Negroni lovers, but lots of people are just hearing about the variant for the first time. It’s easy enough to make yourself (just replace the gin in a Negroni with Prosecco), but if you’re not a fan of short, bitter cocktails, this may not be the one for you.

Butter Boards

Spreading room temp butter over a chopping board may sound like an unfortunate kitchen mishap, but turns out it’s a popular food trend at the moment – and it sounds pretty good. Butter boards and the new charcuterie boards, but instead of meats and cheese you get a shareable spread of butter and, well, anything else you fancy. People have topped theirs with honey, edible flowers, truffle slices, herbs, figs, nuts, and much more. Go crazy.

Olivia Wilde’s Salad Dressing

The details of this top-secret special salad dressing are not 100% certain, but side effects may include high drama and the dissolution of long-term relationships. In a cryptic IG story, Olivia Wilde hinted that the recipe is the same as the one mentioned in Nora Ephron’s Heartburn (2 tablespoons of Grey Poupon, 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar and 6 tablespoons of olive oil), so you can make it for yourself – if you dare.


Ok so 3 things thank you for your patience with my interlude , bat phone rang mid sentence . 2nd- I edited the video too fast so that’s why a double sneak peak happened . Apologies again. 3rd – you can use raw garlic I was exaggerating, just don’t put as much as I did love ya

Bella Hadid’s Sandwich

Everyone’s favourite supermodel and meme machine Bella Hadid recently had TikTok begging the question, ‘what’s in that sandwich?!’ After sharing a video on a hike with a friend sharing a deli-style sub, the comments demanded a recipe and she gracefully delivered. It’s quite an extensive list of ingredients, and the process involves making your own vinaigrette, but if you have a spare hour to dedicate to the delicate art of sarnie assembling, go for it.
