Ease of opening

I was at an interesting conference about user friendly packaging on the 30th of april at Danish Technological Institute. Inspiring speakers and interesting and people. At the very boring and traditional "sit down by the table and take a picture" you can see Rama Gheerawo, Innovation leader at Helen Hamlyn Center, the Royal College of Art. He was talking about an amusing example of an easy peel bacon package - that apparently hadn´t been tested on real consumers before launching. /jb Ease_of_opening

Cooking and competition

48831_66108
A few weeks ago I sent in an recipe for a competition at Tasteline. It is called Årets Hemmakock, which means something like - This years best unprofessional chef.
My recipe was chosen to represent Skåne and if the jury continues to like it I will be cooking live in Stockholm in November.

Bikes and heads

Fact_foto1
Lovely to see some new design for safer biking and a little less sterotype designed headgear (coloured plastics, composites and that sporty look can be so boring) Yakkay is a new danish brand that you probably can buy at a store near you very soon. Some of the people behind it is well known Tools design.
