recipe-tattoos

Traditional cookbooks are so over, and you’re probably a fan of crib notes. I Tradizionali is a fun project created by Marina Cinciripini and Sarah Richiuso. 

The series consists of recipes that can be applied to the body as temporary tattoos. It’s the perfect way to sneakingly reference your info, without missing a beat at the stove.

I Tradizionali currently contains only a few tattoos, including ‘Grandmother’s Artichokes’ and ‘Spaghetti with Dry Tomatoes and Anchovies.’ The project is currently seeking funds for more recipes and mass-production over at Eppela

Meat and Cheese Packaging That Tells You The Part of The Animal You’re Getting

beef-corella

When shopping for meat at the supermarket, it’s easy enough to grab whatever the “Manager’s Special” is, and to not pay much attention to exactly what parts you’re buying.

Corella, a small meat and cheese store in Spain, commissioned Fauna to rethink their brand. With fun and education in mind, the minimalist packaging provides a handy diagram of what part of the animal you’ll be buying.

Even the cheeses will make you smarter. Just in case you didn’t know the type of animal it comes from from, and where on its body. Perhaps sometimes it’s best not to know.
