And talking about cooking, here is an inspiring young designer: Caroline Swift. She has a thing when it comes to marrying cooking and design.
Caroline swift has worked in the field of knitwear design for almost twenty years. working in New York, England and Italy as head of knitwear for Benetton she has enjoyed an exciting career designing for different markets from luxury to high street and travelled the world for research.
In 2003, disillusioned, she gave up her job and moved to Sri Lanka and India to work as a volunteer, teaching english.
On return to the UK, she wanted to re-connect with the passion that she had previously felt for design. She started designing cakes for a book that she was writing and styling and then found that she could not source the right plates for her photographs, so started making them herself. This sense of curiosity has led to designing products in all areas in the same uncompromising fashion.
Her own label is her own personal approach to design. slow design, where care is taken and quality paramount. Slow design is not about taking ages making things; rather it is a philosophy about taking pleasure and pride in making things and passing that on.
The collection includes homewares and clothing with an over-riding philosophy. All materials are natural, all products are made with integrity and to the highest quality, often inspired by nature, every piece is unique. Each item is exquisitely gift-packaged in bespoke boxes, hand-made felt bags and tied with porcelain gift tags.
And the design website Design*Sponge asked her to share a few recipes, this is what they received:
