How Tech Is Bringing Creativity Back To The Kitchen
Culinary devices are lowering the barrier to 'expert' cooking as people return to eating at home.
The rise in food culture over the past few years has not only led to a flood of foodstagrams and unique restaurants, but also an increased interest in cooking at home. Taking the time to select fresh ingredients and try adventurous recipes has become a leisure activity for young urbanites looking to slow down and escape the always-on work/lifestyle demanded by today’s economy.
At the same time, new devices are pushing the eating experience into new dimensions. Recently we’ve covered more experimental gadgets that play with smell as a food enhancer. While these are great fun, they don’t address the fundamental, creative culinary drive consumers exhibit when they try to adopt fancy cooking techniques like sous vide (meaning ‘under vacuum’ in French).
