I think I need this. No I know I need this. Not only does it look amazing, but the concept is simply brilliant.
Roccbox name says it all, it´s a stone in a boxthat gets really hot very fast. This way you get stone baking properties. Not only that, this is portable thanks the compact size so you can take it pretty much anywhere. According to the video below you can bake a 12 inch pizza in just over 90 seconds thanks to an internal temperature of 932 degrees farenhite (500c). The special burner enables the inside to heat up in around 15 minutes, which is really quite fast. The stone on the inside is a refractory stone, which is ideal to preserve and disperse heat through out the cooking chamber. Roccbox features spatial insulation materials, and a silicone outer coating so you won´t get burned if you ever touch its surface. It comes with a wood burner, gas burner thermometer, a pizza peel and a recipe book. I love the part in the video where he is cooking a steak in a cast iron skillet in this thing. They reached funding on Indigogo so this thing is available for order in a handful of countries including the USA.
A poster series after my own heart. What could be better than travel, architecture, food and cocktails? This series of posters created by Dublin based design studio me&him&you features 14 great world cities that are identified by architectural landmarks and a signature drink or food for each. The 17 by 24 inch one color posters are silkscreened onto 190 gram Rothmill cream paper,with solvent free, water based ink. Each poster is hand numbered and signed.
Prints are delivered rolled in a strong postage tube packed in acid-free tissue paper. Each print is accompanied with an information slip about the project, blind embossed with our company seal. At sixty Euro, or about $75.00 I know what I’m adding to my Christmas wish list.
What a fun toy idea for kids. OTO is making food trucks for pre-school kids from design company Blacklist. The truck is constructed out of recycled cardboard and printed with fun, lush, super detailed illustrations. After spending two years prototyping and promoting the idea on indigogo Blacklist and OTO are now at the point where the rucks are production ready! The cardboard food truck measure in at 40” x 36” x 24”. They are made from 100% recyclable materials and completely fun for your aspiring Cordon Bleu Kinder Chef.
Each truck was first modeled and rendered in 3D by HIFI3D, to achieve realistic shadings and reflections as well as an insane level of detail down to the last screw. After that, Blacklist’s designers draw the lettering and illustrations on top of the renders. Each truck features hand drawn typography that is printed along with other graphics in the final process as well.
Tonight I had the privilege of attending the “Food Fight 3” benefit for CCVI “Children’s Center for the Visually Impaired” at Studio Dan Meiners. As usual, the food was outstanding, the company was great, and the cook off every bit as exciting as last nights Super Bowl.
It’s been a long day, and my Internet service from sucky Time Warner is down yet again, so I’m posting via iPone. This post will be short and to the point, with a couple of Instagram images of two of my fave KC chefs and people. If you get a chance go to http://www.ccvi.org and make a donation. It’s for a great cause.
