Preserved knowledge - What we don´t know anymore about our food:
Food is something we are confronted with every day. But the generation of today lives in a haze of ignorance when it comes to our nutrient. Cleo Maxime de Brabander asked elderly people how they used to preserve food before the refrigerator was invented.
Did you know that lemons stay fresh if you cover their cut side with vinegar? Or that sugar regulates the humidity of cheese, similar to rice in salt?
With this contemporary series of kitchen products, existing out of a cheese cover with space for sugar, an apple rack and a lemon dish, Cleo Maxime de Brabander wants to create awareness, educate and increase the value of our food.
During next weeks I´ll tell you more about how to store food outside the fridge!
