So I’m cooking something up, or trying to… It envolves food I’ve made & eaten during the last year in Stockholm, combined with my love for food. If you know me well, you know how I love eating and cooking.
Check my food sightings on Food Spotting! One of the most fun apps in the world I think.. Anyway, Update on this thing i’m ‘cooking’, soon :)
Spotted this beautiful and cosy store while interviewing people for our idea generation workshop today. What looked like a boutique coffee shop, on Nybrogatan, had a unique front, with artificial grass and cute sitting space outside. Not to mention the really sweet logo on the window, teamed with the lines around it’s borders to finish off the picturesque scenery for passers by!
I had to stop and take a picture of it. I’ll try and go in next time, it looked perfect inside too!
Yes, I love food, and I love taking pictures of what I eat. So here goes two pictures of my meal on Saturday night, home made hamburgers by me and my boyfriend: 800grams of meat; cheese; tomato; ruccola; and fried onion. And chips. Yes, it was 2 for each of us, and I did manage to eat my two parts, although I had to suffer some mild stomach pain after, it was worth it!
Joulies - Keep you’re beverage at the perfect temperature
This innovative product, started by two engineers Dave Petrillo and Dave Jackson, sits in the bottom of your cup or travel mug. Each Joulie has “a special non-toxic material sealed within the polished stainless steel shell.” That material melts at 140 degrees Fahrenheit. When it does, it absorbs thermal energy. And as the material solidifies again, it releases said energy. Voilá! Your coffee or tea cools to a drinkable temperature much more quickly and stays warm “twice as long.”
100 Joulies were made by hand they raised money on Kickstarter. The engineers’ initial goal was $9,500. They ended up raising more than $300,000…! You can’t buy Joulies yet, but you can get on a mailing list via their website. When they are available, they’ll go for $50 for a set of five. Watch their case video for more info! ->Follow Joulies on Twitter. // -> Follow Joulies on Facebook.
—I actually have this problem EVERYDAY when I make a huge mug of tea/coffee and take it to my working space at Hyper Island… it’s way too hot when I put it down on my desk, and when i remember to have a sip, it’s gone cold!! Great idea.
Documentary and fine art photographer Stephanie de Rouge did a depiction of people’s character and lifestyle with the project: you are what’s in your fridge. This series complements other documentary series by the artist, In Your Roomand On Your Roof. Stephanie Lives in New York since 2006, and is a freelance photographer at The New York Times, and photography teacher at The International Center of Photography.
This particular series, ‘In your fridge’ we’re introduced to a varied range of people and invited to make assumptions on their lives based on what they keep on-hand. It’s easy to pick the photographer (the man with little but film and alcohol) and the person who doesn’t cook (the man with a fridge full of drinks only), as well as the huge families and those that really love juice.
I love this work by Stephanie! I have always believed that what you eat and what you’re fridge contains, says a lot about you. I love food, so I am a big observer of how people eat, and especially the differences between cultures’ gastronomies, and underlying reasons for these differences.
This is such a fun way to ‘study’ the subject of lifestyle and diet, families and food, and status and food - the relationships they have.
I love the contrast between the photo of the fridge sidelined by the photo of the consumers of the content of that fridge beside it !
