Eat your design.

"Listen to food. Have you ever chatted with a carrot? or even a tomato? Just do it once. They have so much to say. If you pay attention, the ingredients will finally tell you what you should do."
Jose Andres, chef.

Spain is my great love, a country I respect, my Mecca. So, when combined to food and drink, makes  the Holy Trinity. Last week I was invited at the opening of an interesting exhibition. A bunch of fresh Spanish designers inspired from contemporary Gastronomy, have created everyday's utensils and fine art de la table. The curator Martin Azua and co-curator Sergi Vich, whom I met and I am happy about it, have placed all these objects on a long dinner table, like the ones that held family events.

The name of the exhibition is Foodjects and it is being held in the "Athens School of Fine Arts" in collaboration with the Spanish Embassy and it will last till the 18th of February. These are some pieces which I would like to have in my kitchen, as a single girl. Como una soltera.

  4. This isn't relevant to the post, but I love your description, "When I grow up, I want to be a gastronomer. For the time being, I am a food editor." Super cute! ;-)

    @priyanka I am an editor working for two magazines, the one is called "Gastronomos" and the other (translated) "Sweet stories"- which is the first pastry mag in Greece. I studied journalism and I had a dream, that soon came true-get involved in gastronomy and magazines, the two things I love. This is me and thank you for joining my blog! :)
