By Jashan Sippy

FREE DOWNLOAD


What are the implications of technology having taken over our food systems on our consumption habits? Is social media to blame for the rising obesity and disordered eating habits of our younger generations? How aware are we of what’s going on behind the scenes in our food systems from farm to fork and how technology is infiltrating our food? There’s no denying that tech has transformed food supply chains, connecting farmers and restaurants with more customers through better ways of working together. Who knows what the future will bring. Maybe we’ll have robot chefs whipping up meals in our kitchens, or even a 3D food printer to replace your microwave. Jashan Sippy already has his, and has been innovating with it since 2019.

This book collects and shares the words and insights of the people who make the Food Design discipline, capturing their thoughts, their perspectives, and their work. Here, food designers, chefs, academics, researchers, scientists, and writers influential in this growing discipline, give their insights by answering three questions: What is the relevance of Food Design in the current global situation? What is your approach to sustainable Food Design? What is Food Design today? This book is a collection of answers to these questions, a sort of museum exhibiting people’s work around the same themes. This book can be read by browsing the pages, stopping where an image or a quote grabs the attention, and reading the bio and answers of the person featured. Or it can be read focusing on one question at a time, and reading each person’s answer, to then start from the beginning with another question. Food Design Voices opens a door into someone’s world and allows us to see through their eye, and in doing so, it opens 86 doors into the world of Food Design, its present, and its future.
