Food


The Canadian branch of the Swedish furniture tycoon teamed up with Toronto-based marketing company Leo Burnett to create Cook This Page, an ingenious set of illustrated recipes which they unveiled at a recent IKEA Canada kitchen event. Each one displays drawings of the ingredients needed, and the prospective chef just has to fill in the blanks. The best part? They’re all printed on parchment paper using food-safe ink, so once everything is in place, the page can be rolled up and tossed in the oven.

Heston Blumenthal is famous for creating multi-sensory dining experiences. Dishes on the set menu at The Fat Duck – his three Michelin starred restaurant in Berkshire – include an Alice in Wonderland-themed Mock Turtle Soup and a seafood course served on tapioca ‘sand’ alongside an audio recording of crashing waves.

Design agency Seymourpowell recently collaborated with Blumenthal and The Fat Duck’s confectionery chefs to create an intricate mechanical sweet shop that dispenses the restaurant’s final course – a selection of petit fours. (via Creative Review)

When looking at a case of pastries in a bakery it’s usually possible to intuit what something might taste like because of its familiar shape or color. Such is not the case with these radically unusual cake designs by Ukrainian pastry chef Dinara Kasko whose experimental techniques result in edible objects unlike anything we’ve ever seen.
Most of her creations would look just fine sitting on a pedestal inside a contemporary art museum, but surprisingly everything you see here is completely edible. Kasko actively works math into her creations, incorporating principles like the Voroni method or utilizing 3D modeling and printing to create different cakes or silicone molds. If the cake shapes are unfamiliar, it might be easier to relate to some of the ingredients she uses like sponge cake, chocolate mousse, berry confit, shortcrust dough, and meringue. (via Colossal)

Colour is literally on the menu at Pantone’s new pop-up café in Monaco. Located on Grimaldi Forum, the temporary establishment provides a brilliantly hued counterpoint to the already-colourful backdrop of Larvotta beach, where vacationers can ‘Taste the Colors’ until early September.

Founded in 1963 by Lawrence Herbert, the New Jersey-based colour systems company has enjoyed a cult following for years, inspiring everything from a chocolate colour chart to an entire hotel. The photogenic space – realised by Monaco Restaurant Group (the same firm behind Mozza and Song Qi) – pays homage to the iconic Pantone Matching System, with numerical codes and swatches assigned to the tables, napkins, and chairs.

The café serves up an extensive menu of salads, sandwiches, ice cream, granitas and more – all of which have also been matched to a Pantone chip and accordingly packaged. (via Wallpaper)

Pantone Café runs until 9 September 2015. Open daily from 10am to 8pm and until 10pm on Thursdays.
