World Food Festival & RotterdamseKost

Last friday I went to Rotterdam ( a city in The Netherlands), to this food festival I told you about a couple of weeks ago. There also was a culinary, cultural indoor music festival. Let me show you…

No words but seeds

There was a lot to see at World Food Festival. What you see here below are seeds. This was a type of library but with seeds instead of books. Hysterical and old vegetable seeds, old spices with wonderful names and so on.  First you become a member of this seed library, then let the plants grow and harvest the seeds. These seeds can be exchanged for new ones. Click here for more info.

While these raspberries look delicious, they are actually poisoned so you must not eat or even touch them. Revital Cohen and Tuur van Balen, wanted to combine design with biology, science and curiosity. It is known that when slaughtering an animal, this animal produces stress hormones and these hormones can change the taste of the meat.

Exactly this type of hormones were added to these raspberries as you can see in the pictures. These designers tried to capture the “flavor of fear” as they call it.

Faked meat

I eat almost everything. There are only some things that makes me gag; like mushroom soup. While I can not imagine how it would be to stop eating meat, there are a lot of people who already are vegetarians.
Meat substitutes are becoming very popular at the supermarket. Marije Volgelzang was astonished about it and the fact that it is such a shapeless protein does not make it taste any better. Marije thought it would be a good idea to the invent new animals. She even gave them their own habitat, diet and lifestyle. Click here for one of her interviews.
