Graphic designer Melanie Chernock has launched a project that aims to redesign the iconic New York City Metrocard in a new way. Even though the current Metrocard design has been around for years, it could use a little updating: the purpose of the project - NYC School of Visual Art's class assignment for creating "a deck of cards" - is to show the many ways there are to design a better Metrocard and to promote better design within the city.
Every area or districts has its own taste: meat for the Meatpacking District, spaghetti at Little Italy, herbs in the Gramercy Park.
Redesigning the Metrocard was an experimental process for Melanie: she had to make around 100 cards to get 25 good ones.
Garum is an ancient ingredient that had been broadly overlooked for hundreds of years before it gained popularity in New Nordic cuisine. Kiki Aranita takes a deep dive into the world of this oft-forgotten fermented flavour-booster.
Geranium's Rasmus Kofoed has decided to stop serving meat at the restaurant currently ranked number two on the World's 50 Best Restaurants list. But the Danish chef isn't yet willing to go purely plant-based.
