An Incredibly beautiful animation inspiring us to question the long term impacts of our meals (beyond an impending food baby).

There is not much in life that compares to a few drinks over a home cooked meal with good company.

But Eat for Equity manages to go one step further in the warm and fuzzy stakes by providing an opportunity to contribute to local and global grassroots non-profits (whilst also stuffing your face). The idea is pretty damn simple: turn up and give what you can afford, then relax and enjoy an evening of food and good times.

It’s this honest attitude that has seen the initiative break down barriers for everyday people to contribute within their means on a regular basis. So far $34,000 has been donated, we’ll raise our forks to that.


What if your food talked back? A bunch of clever designers have made a break through in human-food communication with their project ‘Noisy Jelly’. The invention was created using Max/Msp and uses capacity sensors and a variety of jelly shapes (all with different salt concentrations) to detect the proximity and strength of finger contact. This feedback is then turned into an audio signal, giving the jelly a ‘voice’!!

I wonder what chocolate sounds like.

Screw Beatrice Ward and her ‘Crystal Goblet’ theory, we think type should not only be visible but also tasty and preferably served with a nice slice of brie.

Om nom nom, crunch crunch crunch…

It’s not about cutting fish out of our diet because overfishing exists. Or not eating beef because cows fart too much. If we start doing that then we’ll become dormant creatures not doing anything because everything is bad for the Earth.

You know that mentality of “well, everything gives you cancer and we’re all dying anyway so who cares…”  Well Swampdog cares. It’s fish and chips with a conscience. From the approved sustainable fish on the menu to the closed loop paper and biodegradable bamboo packaging, they make their initiatives clear.

Good for you, good for me, good for the sea.

Know thy farmer with Food Connect, an initiative that puts a face to the local farmers that grow your beets and beans every week. Order a box of the freshest fruit and veg this side of the Brisbane river and pick it up from one of their city cousins.

We have been pretty vocal about our sandwich obsession, so it is a little upsetting that is has taken us this long to discover The Smörgåstårta. It isn’t exactly cake, nor is it a sandwich, it lies somewhere in a magical fantasy food realm all of its own.

A staple in Sweden, Finland and Estonia, this hybrid sandwich cake can be constructed from any combination of your favourite savoury foods held together in a cake shape by creamy fillings and soft, freshly baked bread. Some of the more tradtional ingredients include: liver paté, olives, shrimp, ham, various cold cuts, caviar, tomato, cucumber, cheese and smoked salmon.

A tasty treat.. Last week our friends at Whimsical Cakehouse asked us to create a design for a 60th Birthday cake. With some nifty design skills up our sleeves, we worked with Guy and Linda to produce this edible masterpiece. Photography © Whimsical Cakehouse

There are 12 days of Christmas… and here are 12 delicious eggnog recipes, coincidence? We think not!!

Even in this rainy and rather cold weather we have high hopes for a sunny Christmas break. With Pimms and other summer cocktails in hand, we’re set for a relaxing week or two (in two weeks time)..

Introducing first world country’s new food portions via I’m So Tiny. Yum.

Drinkify a very sexy mashup mashing our two favourite things. Music and booze. Served in swanky crystal goblets of course.

The French have a chic stereotype for a reason.  MacDonalds commissioned Patrick Norguet to redesign their interiors to be rolled out throughout all restaurants in France. Norguet shifts the emphasis of the fast-food restaurants away from a teenage hangout to a dining space for family. No bright yellow double arches in sight!

We’re going to start getting more crafty so we’ve decided that Sunday will be our Make Day.  Starting with some artistic baking.
