NEIGHBORHOOD DESSERTS

http://www.buurttoetje.nl is charming, and operates on a very small scale. It started with one person who moved to Bos en Lommer, Amsterdam, where he did not know many people. The newcomer’s hobby: baking cakes and creating very tasty desserts. More often than not, too much food is made, and sadly, some of it ends up […]

A paradigm shift in the science of food is underway. Fifteen years ago, proper nutrition meant augmenting the types of food we ate. Buzzwords such as low-carb, low-cal, non-fat, low-glycemic, organic, and natural made their way into our food vocabulary. Yet we are becoming fatter and unhealthier.

This is an ice cream shop in the beach resort town of Hua Hin, about 200 km south of Bangkok, Thailand. The refreshing shop was designed by Bangkok’s MADA Design Factory. A few little nods to Willy Wonka are there – the pieces of machinery and copper fixtures, the pepperminty red-and-white round tables, the chewing-gum […]

The limited-edition is shaped liked a regular Coke bottle and has the drinks giant’s name etched into the ice. However, so customers aren’t left with cold hands, it comes with a red rubber band that slips around the bottle, which can be worn as a bracelt after the ice melts. Coca-Cola makes the ice bottles […]
