Master Chef  Designer

Design Brief

Food design is a relatively new discipline that includes the process of design studies and research that generates new products related to food. It is both a research field and an applied creative ground. This discipline is part of the industrial design and is in charge of the creation and design of food, parts of complex food products and in some way related to them. There are numerous subcategories within the context of food design. Among which “Design for Food” appears to be the closest to conventional product design practices.

Design for Food category covers the design of all the products useful to cut, chop, mix, contain, preserve, store, cook and present food. In this category we find all the products that are part of the preparation, distribution and communication of food.

Project B entitled: “Master Chef DESIGNER” aims at researching within this scope. Students are expected to execute a gastronomical experience such as cooking, baking, preparing any kind of drinks, sauces etc. through an intended recipe. Throughout your experience you are expected to become the master of that recipe.
