I have something great for you! I’ve spent my summer thinking about how I could create more free value for those wanting to approach Food Design. So I have created a wonderful free course called FOOD DESIGN 101.
Do you want to open a restaurant, a catering business, or a food truck? Do you want to become a more innovative chef or a more successful Food Product Designer? Do you want to bring Food Design in your company or Design studio? Let me help you get there!
This course will show you what Food Design is, in all it’s shapes and forms, AND over the two weeks that follow you signing up, you will receive 6 email lessonsthat will give a kick start your career in Food Design. Like the idea?
These free live Webinars are all about the experts. A 30 minutes (or more…) conversation where food designers and food innovators tell us the story of how they became who they are, how they started working in Food Design, and will give us their unique perspective on Food Design.
Here are the first scheduled webinars:
September 26, 2016 – 6pm GMT+2: How I became a Food Designer, with the designers fromPapila (Spain), and Studio AMeBE (Italy). A conversation with those who created their own Food Design career, listening to their journey and exploring some of their most successful project.
October 11, 2016 – 5pm GMT+2:Between art and food, with artist Jean Paul Ganem (Paris). Exploring the behind the scened of The Singhampton Project with one of its two artists. The Singhampton Project combined the culinary knowledge of chef Michael Stadtlander and artist Jean Paul Ganem. Ganem designed 7 edible gardens which chef Stadtlander used to create a 7-course meal for 20 nights. A story about farm-to-table, a story about food and people. This wonderful project has been made into a beautiful Documentary; watch the trailer here.
October 20, 2016 – 6pm GMT+2:How I became a food designer (part 2), with food designer Antonella Mignacca from Into The Food. Another conversation with an established food designer, her journey and some of her most inspiring projects.
For the first time ever, the 3rd International Conference on Food Design offers an opportunity for the worldwide Food Design community to virtually meet, mingle and share research and projects. The 3rd International Conference on Food Design is the first completely virtual and completely free conference for academics, professionals, and industries.
This conference will be 100% Virtual and 100% Free, but still with everything a conference needs: a reviewing process, Conference Proceedings, presentations, a space for networking, a Food Design Exhibition, and the possibility to publish in a Journal.
RESEARCH PRESENTATIONS: This session is for researchers, from industry or academia, who have contributed to the Food Design world and want to share their findings for the benefit of the industry, practitioners, and other researchers. The conference will have proceedings with ISBN.
Outcome: 15 min presentation + abstract in Conference Proceedings (see below) + possibility for your paper to be selected for the International Journal of Food Design.
PRACTICE PRESENTATIONS: This session is for designers, design students, and researchers who have worked on improving this world with tangible solutions.

Selected projects will enter the Virtual Food Design Exhibition.
Outcome: 15 min presentation + project in the Virtual Food Design Exhibition (see below)
DISCUSSION ROOMS: Discussion Rooms are virtual rooms where a group of experts tackle, disassemble, dive into one Food Design issue, providing different perspectives, arguments, and points of view, and finally generating together a new insight, understanding, and conclusion.

I’ve been at the Titanic Belfast and I’ve found there the menu that was given in First Class on April 14, 1912, the day the titanic sunk. It made me think… =)

Who wants to drink a coffee while hanging out with cats? I do! =)
While visiting Seoul, South Korea, I visited this cat cafe and I quite liked it. Cats are fluffy and adorable, and the idea of making them customers entertainment works because of how happy the cats themselves seemed to be. To review this service I used the Five Aspects Meal Model by Gustafsson et.al. The Cat Cafe is a good example of Food Service Design, and the Five Aspects Meal Model is a wonderful tool to use to understand, analyse and ultimately design services.

How do I design a food product, a service, a dish, an eating event or a food truck that makes people go “wow”?
I thought about this question for a looooong time, and I condensed my answer into a simple diagram, which I call the Food Design Target. A diagram, or a target, that visualises all the aspects Food Designers should consider when designing anything that has to do with food or eating. Enjoy!

And one day while walking through the streets of Seoul, I walked into a 7eleven and I saw them…. I saw the Korea Spicy Noodles everybody was talking about! So I bought them and brought them to Belfast, where two days later I was speaking at CHME16 Conference (May 5, 2016). While in Belfast I discussed these noodles and this curious challenge-frenzy with Dr Lynsey Hollywood.
