Syr, a crowdfunded restaurant in Utrecht, Netherlands that employs recently arrived Syrian and Afghan refugees, offering them a platform to share their cuisine, to earn money, to share their stories and to pursue educational programs. We need more of this!
MIT teaches you how to speak Italian and cook Italian food all at once in this Free Online Course.
Copypastry produces 3D printed custom-made cookie cutters that look exactly like your face. Have any silhouette, family portrait, logo or drawing printed and bake your heart out! Fun!
These Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Sautéed Shallots look delicious. Definitely going to give this recipe a try.
Industrial designer Eva Solo strikes again, this time with the Nordic Pot. Designed to resemble cast iron but made from lightweight aluminum, this pot is easy to use and to clean. Comes with non-stick coating and can be used on stovetop as well in the oven. Love!
As someone who really doesn’t like to clean the stove, I love the idea behind this slightly silly looking product called Frywall. It is a silicone splatter guard that fits inside the rim of any pot or pan, so spattering and sizzling food won’t spray out.
This Cheese Degrees Cutting Board made me laugh. My dad constantly lectured me and my sister on what angles we are allowed to cut cheese.
I will give this Summer Rolls recipe a try with my kids. Looks so good, and most of all, fun to make.
These soy sauce dipping dishes by Duncan Shotton take advantage of the natural colour gradation that occurs in soy sauce at shallow depths to give the illusion of three-dimensional shapes once filled. LOVE!
Food Fortunes is a take on Tarot and makes divining the sacred mysteries of “what’s for dinner tonight?” a snap. Simply lay the cards out three at a time and voila—a meal appears, a vision from the spirit realm. Food Fortunes can be played alone or with hungry friends to give apathetic appetites a mystical nudge in the right direction. Made me smile.
I am continuously impressed by what Zach and his team are coming up with. First DIY and now JAM: online courses for kids. I wish this would have been around (and the internet) when I was a kid, growing up on the Swiss country side, *so* hungry to learn and connect with other kids. Can’t wait to see what other classes will be next! (Secretly hoping for a sewing class!)
I love to cook with cast iron pans but have never seen this type of shape. I’d give it a loving home.
