Square Meal – Good Food project is an innovation of an age old typology of cooking utensil objects.
Satyendra Pakhalé says: “Having glance at the panorama of cooking utensils from India, there is a lot to choose. I selected a beautiful traditional way of cooking from Kerala, the most southern state of India. They call it “Puttu”; it has a vertical proportion and is traditionally made of bamboo. Keeping my objective I have taken this original principle of steam cooking that keeps the flavours and vitamins in it and developed it into a contemporary dish to cook a ‘Good food’ representing also the food pyramid. Creating a shape and volume that is good for one, serving for a dinner with few friends or a family.”
Ceramics somehow seems to be appropriate material for steam cooking. Food intelligence = open mouths + open minds
