My Drunk Kitchen: Brunch

May 20, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Today you’re definitely getting a mix of high-brow and low-brow art, so bear with me. I’m sorry but this is the most brilliant cooking video I’ve ever seen. The sixth in a series by Hanna Hart, who gets drunk and teaches you how to cook. Sort of. Beware language. (thnx, byron)

Street Map Cutting Board is Both Functional and Gruesome

March 23, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Just saw this new item pop up at my favorite Icelandic design shop, Birkiland. The Nordurmyrin by 7-9-13 Design Group is a meat cutting board designed to mimic the streets of an actual neighborhood in east Reykjavik.

Nordurmyrin is a meat cutting- and serving board. It draws its name from a neighbourhood in the old east of Reykjavik. Its street names are named after renowned characters in the old icelandic sagas: Landnama, Laxdaela and Njala. These are examples of the street names: Audargata, Gudrunargata, Gunnarsbraut and Skarphedinsgata. When meat is cut on the board the blood juices rush down the streets. It refers to the conflicts that arose in the societies of the second and third generations of Icelandic settlers.

The blood juices run down the streets?! Excuse me while I put on my Bill the Butcher costume and whip out the credit card, this cutting board is the most gruesomely awesome kitchen implement of 2011.

I’m really enjoying the objects available in the Sebastian Bergne online shop which just launched last December. Lots of fantastic things for the home and kitchen, as well as some playful stuff too. Sebastian Bergne is a multidisciplinary design firm out of London.

The Designers of Taste

December 15, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Whether you can afford it or not, the world of molecular gastronomy, the convergence of art, science, and food appears to be with us for a while as restaurants like Alinea and elBulli take honors as some of the best restaurants in the world. This new book, Cooking Science: Condensed Matter by Vicenc Altaio, Ferran Adria, and Josep Perello, is the physical catalog of a show presented in part by Harvard by the same name that sought to view gastronomy and nutrition through the eyes of scientists.

Cooking science invites us to look at cooking, gastronomy and nutrition through the scientist’s eyes and see them as a truly cultural activity which brings a wealth of knowledge into play. Challenging the predominance of visual culture, our eating habits and the pleasure of food privilege the senses of taste, touch, smell and even hearing. Perception and landscape define our cooking, but cooking also has a component of reflection and innovation based on scientific and technological research. […] This volume constitutes a unique document of this task. The book’s QR codes link the paper media with the digital media, augmenting the reality and giving further information.

You can see quite a few more pages from the book here. The question at the heart of this all, I suppose, is can food be regarded as true art? Or can science be art? Gah my eyes just crossed. (via we make money not art)
