Vegetables 3D

July 28, 2009


The vegetable 3D  are organic products such as a bowl, a vase, plates, made from a variety of 100% dried vegetables and fruits. All the materials are fully eatable, 100% biological disposable and tasty.

It is recommended for use indoors. When the material is in a high-humidity environment, the material becomes weaker and more flexible. In a constant high-humid environment, or when the material gets wet, the material will perish thus not suitable for places like Singapore.

I can imagine it being used for picnics and home buffets, less waste, more food.

Giant toasted leafcutter ants.
Hormigas Culonas are harvested in the Colombian Amazon by the Guane Indians, during the short rainy season between March and June. They are then toasted in a mud pot over an open fire by the Indians.
The Guane Indians believe that these Ants have youth giving and Aphrodisiac properties and they are often served as fertility giving marriage food during nuptial ceremonies. Hormigas Culonas taste similar to crisply fried bacon with an earthy taste.

The mopane worm is the brightly coloured caterpillar of the Emperor Moth, which is one of the world’s largest moths, and the caterpillar lives on the leaves of the mopane tree. The worms are hand picked or shaken off the trees. The local collector’s squeeze the Caterpillars to remove their bright green ‘guts’ and then they are cooked in a cauldron of salty water until the water has evaporated, they are then dried in the Hot African Sun. Once dried, they can be stored for many months.
The biggest worms have the best flavour as they contain more fat ; the texture is similar to tofu or soya meat and they taste a little like dried fish, but they seem to soak up the flavour of whatever they are cooked with.
Now available ready packed…
