Food blogs we really really love

Marije Vogelzang Eating Design. Designers who work with the subject of food are often called ‘food designers’. According to Marije Vogelzang, food is already perfectly designed by nature. Instead, her designs focus around the verb ‘to eat’. Vogelzang is inspired by the origin of food and the preparation, etiquette, history and culture around it.  “There is no material that comes as close to human beings as food.”
