We will be in Hong Kong at Hotel ICON for FOOD FUTURE on July 21st.

 

After a highly visual keynote presented by our editor Cecile Poignant we will be happy to welcome our panelists:

 

Larry Tang, founder SOHOFAMA, Vicky Lau - Tate Dining Room & Bar chef and owner, Veronica Yu - Eating Concept Designer and Dr Carol Sze Ki Lin, from City University of Hong Kong.

 

Veronica Yu is an eating concept designer. She shares her experiences, memories and stories through the medium of food in her design projects. Through the medium of food Yu tells stories because food has the power to touch all our senses and transport each of us to another space, time and location in an indescribable way.

 

There were steps before being an eating concept designer : during her university years in multimedia design program - Yu did a lot exploratory projects in genetically modified foods, biopharmed food and in bottled water brand comparison research. After university, for two years in Vancouver and Beijing she dived into the world of catering to combine a passion for food and for event planning.

 

Yu then worked for a multimedia design program, she found great pleasure in creating conceptual design work with food. To explore this interdisciplinary field, she worked as an eating design intern with a Dutch eating designer, Marjie Vogelzang exploring the possibilities in food concept based installation art, catering, restaurant concepts and products.

 

Since 2010, Yu is back in Hong Kong and founded with Constance Tong Candied Fish an eating design collective using the medium of food to tell stories through branding and graphics projects, food products and food and eating experience events. The name Candied Fish came from their Chinese last name, Tong has the same sound as "Candy/Candied" and Yu the same sound as "Fish".

Currently, Candied Fish is working on "old-meets-new" food design projects like Soy Sauce Tasting and Dinners or Chinese New Year Tea Almanac boxes....

 

Soy sauce, an essential seasoning to Chinese dishes, was developed by Buddhists more than 2,500 years ago to complement their vegetarian diets. Dutch merchants have then brought it back to the kitchens of Sun King XIV in the late 17th century and named it “black gold”.

 

For the Soy Sauce Tasting and Dinner at Plantation (a creative space in Sheung Wan), Candied Fish sourced different artisanal Hong Kong locally brewed soy sauce to experience their smell, colours, taste and aftertaste. They have also invited Yuan’s (頤和園), a premium soy sauce maker and their private kitchen chefs to cook a Chinese soy sauce themed dinner.

 

Guests had a lot of fun with the soy sauce spray bottles where they can spray onto fragrance strips and fan it around their nose to smell it. There were a selection of white coloured food for dipping into the soy sauce samples like white mushrooms, tofu and squid.

 

Hand drawn soy sauce placements act as a rating board for everyone, where they can stick different stickers to rate the different types of soy sauce samples. People also wrote many notes to keep track of which one they like the best!

 

Food really got a unique evocative power that Candied Fish is exploring for our greatest pleasure .

We will be in Hong Kong at Hotel ICON for FOOD FUTURE on July 21st.

 

After a highly visual keynote presented by our editor Cecile Poignant we will be happy to welcome our panelists:

 

Larry Tang, founder SOHOFAMA, Vicky Lau - Tate Dining Room & Bar chef and owner, Veronica Yu - Eating Concept Designer and Dr Carol Sze Ki Lin, from City University of Hong Kong.

 

Vicky Lau is a fascinating and remarkable chef. She was named Asia’s Best Female Chef 2015.The Tate Dining Room and Bar is the place where she blends her love for the culinary arts, her design sensibilities and her inspirations to create « Edible Stories ». She’s also earned a Michelin star every year since the restaurant opened in 2012.

 
Vicky Lau was born in Hong Kong, she went to the US when she was 15 to a boarding school in Connecticut. Afterwards she graduated in Graphic Communications from New York and worked in an agency for a while as a creative director.

 

She went back to Hong Kong to start up a project with her sister but it didn’t quite work out. At that time two of her friends were applying to the Cordon Bleu in Bangkok, she joined them. At first it was only for three months and it was a recreational excursion but she stayed there for nine months and finished the grand diploma.

 

This will set her on a path to pursuing her fascination with food as a platform for her artistic expression and creativity.

She was curious about how a fine dining restaurant worked and went to Cépage where she gained a strong reputation as one of Hong Kong’s rising chefs.
 
Lau combines everything she knows about design and food and her knowledge of the business side of things to open the Tate Dining Room and Bar.« When I started Tate, I really wanted a small, homey place to express myself through food, to tell the inspirations from poems that I have read, places that I have been, »

 

Lau creates dishes with a story in mind.She wants to create food landscapes that nourish the soul.« Through the ‘Zen Garden,’ I hope my customers will reflect and ponder on things at the end of their meal .» Plated like a real Zen garden, the matcha dessert comes with a little rake and gravels made of sugar.The amazing details are echoing the real tools and material used to create calming patterns in an actual karesansui. This dish is the result of a tea ceremony Lau witnessed during a trip to Kyoto, Japan a few years ago.

 

Her food is described as « an eclectic mix of French and Japanese influences » in the Michelin’s guide.Her visual presentation skills in creating «  Edible Stories » take guests on a journey while they eat, something referred to as culinary expressionism.

SOHOFAMA

We will be in Hong Kong at Hotel ICON for FOOD FUTURE on July 21st.

 

After a highly visual keynote presented by our editor Cecile Poignant we will be happy to welcome as a panelists:

Larry Tang, founder SOHOFAMA, Vicky Lau - Tate Dining Room & Bar chef and owner, Veronica Yu - Eating Concept Designer and Dr Carol Sze Ki Lin, from City University of Hong Kong.

 
SOHOFAMA’s goal is to raise awareness for healthier living through serving good, chemical-free food, including locally grown ingredients and organic ingredients to support the body.
 
The menu is balanced to reflect both the old and the new with some dishes reflecting childhood favorites, while others celebrate the multiculturalism of today’s Hong Kong society in dishes, and absolutely no Monosodium glutamate or chicken powder. Instead freshly grown herbs for taste and slow cooked chicken broth to fully enhance flavours.
 
Chef Shing has over 20 years of experience in Chinese cooking with a specialization in Shanghainese cuisine. He first commenced his trade at the age of 16 and has since been mentored by some of the best Chinese chefs in Hong Kong. For the past 8 years, Chef Shing was the Head Chef of famous Liu Yuan Pavillion, well known for its rich history and widely considered as one of the best quintessential Shanghainese restaurants in Hong Kong.

Drawing on the Chinese tradition, SOHOFOMA also created seasonal herbal soup selections, designed to suit a range of wellness needs of the urban dweller. These Chinese Medicinal Soups are elaborated by Chains, a Chinese herbalist. In ‘Immunity Booster’ the key medicinal ingredients include ‘Hericium Erinaceus’ and ‘Arctium Root’ which helps lower blood pressures and detoxifies the liver. This soup helps revitalize blood circulation and enhances immunity levels
 
The term ‘farm to table’ is quiet familiar lately, Sohofama have done the opposite: they brought the table to the farm.Their mini farm is the outdoor garden area of the restaurant, where they are currently starting to grow their own vegetables, in pots, along walls, on trolleys… The hope is that this edible garden will help people to think more about where their food comes from, and maybe inspire them to also start their own urban farm or garden.
 
SOHOFAMA is where urban farming meets comfort Chinese cuisine for the Hong Kong of today.

TRENDxCHANGE

the future of food is bright

“I love change,” said Trend Tablet editor Cecile Poignant with a smile, at yesterday’s TrendxChange event in Amsterdam. It was an uplifting beginning to a morning spent talking about ‘Food Future’, the title and theme of the event, which was on its second edition after a successful launch in Paris earlier this year.
 
Jointly conducted with Lidewij Edelkoort’s trend forecasting agency, Trend Union, these events are all about looking forward, in the attempt to better understand the world in which we will be living tomorrow. The theme ‘Food Future’ was chosen for its current global relevance.

 

It seems that everywhere you look, there is a sense that people are more interested than ever in what and how we eat. Just look at the Expo Milano 2015, which is entirely built around the theme of ‘Feeding the Planet’. In an example closer to home, last year saw the Design Academy Eindhoven launching a new design department called Food Non Food, headed by WDCD2013 speaker and eating designer Marije Vogelzang. Vogelzang herself was scheduled to make an appearance at Food Future, but had to cancel due to illness.

Still, there was enough to stay for with Poignant presenting four primary food trends we can expect in the next 5 to 10 years.

 

ROOTS

The first trend she outlined was that of our longing to go back to basics when it comes to food. Like many trends in society today, this nostalgia for the elementary and imperfect, can be explained as a reaction to our increasingly intangible, digital lives. “We are looking for texture, for touch, we want to feel things in our hands,” says Poignant, showing as an example Studio Formafantasma’s range of irregular tableware made of natural materials.
 
FARMING

In a similar way, farming is about to have a big comeback. But this trend comes from a more practical necessity: as more and more of the world’s population live their lives in cities, urban farming will not only become fashionable; it will become very important. This trend will see a change in consumer behaviour; as people become involved in their food cycle, and interested in where and how their meals are made.

EROTIC

At the same time, Poignant explains that we will be looking for a new intimacy and sexuality in our relationship with food. As with all of these trends so far, I realised that the common thread in this is our desire to go back to beginnings – whether that be of our food or of our own selves. And what is more human than wanting to have the forbidden?

 

Eroticism as a trend will mean experimentation with appealing, sensual forms in food (as seen in the now ubiquitous mushroom & fungi food projects) and a specific desire for the things we know are not good for us. Poignant gives the example of meat, saying: “I am not sure that we will ever stop eating meat as a society. But it could be that meat will be something we only eat from time to time, something that we eat with a sense of fetishism… Ritual is very important in eroticism.”
 
HYBRID

The last trend presented is that of the hybrid. This takes us to the innovative & experimental side of food and eating design, where the search for new sensations, tools and flavours will reach new heights. Speaking of 3D printing technology in the food arena, Poignant is wary of those who say that it has not proven itself yet. “Be aware that this is just the beginning,” she posits, “and we are going to see some very interesting and important uses of 3D printing in the future. This trend is about seeing the future with an open mind and with new eyes.”

 

The presentation was closed with a short question and answer round with food entrepreneurs from Amsterdam-based start-ups SLA, Cityplot & Stach. They spoke of local and real-world applications of the trends talked about, and their own takes on food future in Amsterdam & the Netherlands.

 

Still, the most memorable thing about the whole morning was the pervading optimism in every conversation. The future of food is bright. “I’m not naive,” says Poignant of her approach, “but I believe that today things are better than yesterday and tomorrow can be even better.”

TRENDxCHANGE

'Food Future' full program in Amsterdam

 

Hotel Droog

 

The next TRENDxCHANGE will take place at Hotel Droog, one of the nicest place in Amsterdam.
 
« Food Future » explores four main themes of the future as different paths to explore.Food is a complex and epidermic subject. What we eat is influenced by society, geopolitics, beliefs, history, art, marketing, biology… Eating is not just feeding.It’s about feeling emotions, remembering and also discovering, traveling, sharing…The keynote will be presented by Cecile Poignant - Trend Tablet’s editor.
 
Our special guest will be Marije Vogelzang - an iconic character in the ‘food world’.

Designers who work with the subject of food are often called ‘food designers’. According to Marije Vogelzang, food is already perfectly designed by nature. Instead, her designs focus around the verb ‘to eat’. Vogelzang is inspired by the origin of food and the preparation, etiquette, history and culture around it. For this reason, she doesn’t consider herself a ‘food designer’, but as an ‘eating designer’.
 
We will be happy to welcome for our panel:

Stach Schaberg who opened a first store in Amsterdam in October 2011, now his shops are spreading across the city with six different locations! It’s a delicatessen concept where you can get fresh ready-made meals. You can either take away your lunch or eat in the shop. Healthy, tasty and friendly.

Cityplot, is an urban farming collective based in Amsterdam. They dream of a new wave of greenery in cities worldwide, creating a sustainable lifestyle and community alike.They encourage and educate city dwellers how to grow their own vegetables, herbs, edible flowers, micro-greens, fruits and berries or even how to keep chickens in the city.
 
SLA is an organic salad bar. Behind this are Nina, Jop and Ida. They call themselves « experimental eaters gifted with a knack for entrepreneurship ». Their mission is to invite you to see, taste and experience how good food can change your life.They also have a LAB : an open space where you can learn more through talks and workshops by doers and dreamers from the world of good food.
 
Join us on April 9th , we still have a few sits left!
