The Week in Bites | 1st April 2012

Edible cookbooks, chocolate sofas, rumors of an elBulli reopening and QR Codes on Cows and none of these are April Fools Jokes...

By FDL on

QR Cows

This week we started by taking a look at the QR Code Comeback and how the scanned codes are especially having an impact on the food markets. From a farmer who has placed them on his cows to QR codes displaying information about where your fish was caught - we also found figures to suggest that QR codes are undergoing a strong resurgence.

A True Master

Always ones for widening our wine knowledge this week we had the chance to interview Shinya Tasaki the World's Best Sommelier in 1995 and today President of ASI - Association de la Sommellerie Internationale, A sommelier since he was 17 this is a insightful account from someone seriously passionate about the complexities of wine. A must video for all you wine lovers.

Food Mood

We haven't been able to put our copy of Food Mood down ever since it arrived in the office. With edible coffee cups, vegetable jewelry and pictures of some of the best plates of food we've seen from some of the world's best chefs - we absolutely love it.

For the feet or meant to eat?

Diego Gugliermetto makes amazing food furniture - chocolate sofas, pastry poufs - cookies, patisserie - he's made furniture from a huge variation of foods. We were lucky enough to interview Diego and also get a nice collection of pictures to bring you a gallery.

In the blog

We had an edible cookbook, some jelly musical instruments and the faint rumors for a while that Ferran Adria was reopening elBulli...a very busy week.
