I discovered a few days ago in avant premiere the new project of Peugeot Design Lab: a foodtruck baptized Bistrot du Lion. The gastronomic adventure of the brand started more than two centuries ago, with the pepper mill whose mechanism is guaranteed for life or the coffee mill designed in 1840. It is therefore not a coincidence if the creative studio of the French car brand has lean towards the concept of a foodtruck, a nomad and mobile object, which turns into a real restaurant area: the truck can deploy itself and not only has a kitchen area (induction, grill , fryer) but also all the equipment to allow customers to eat around it (umbrellas, cutlery, …), but also a powerful sound system to accommodate a DJ, and even a large screen that transcribes live talent from talented Sven Chartier, guest for the occasion, chef of Saturne and the Clown Bar in Paris.

The foodtruck will head on April 14 in Milan for the furniture fair, and then join the French Pavilion at the Milan World Expo, whose theme this year is “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”.

 


Pierre Marcolini x Kitsuné

Pierre Marcolini had already combined his talents with fashion designer Olympia Le Tan, he returns this time with this object of absolute cuteness signed with music and fashion label Kitsuné with their emblem the fox. The Franco-Japanese duo and the Belgian chocolate maker were inspired by bentos to create those adorable boxes, displaying either chocolates or macaroons. These boxes will be available exclusively at Colette until April 22.

From 31 to 41 €


Black radish carpaccio and pomegranate

SaladeRadisGrenade

The other day I bought a mandolin slicer in a Japanese store (Kioko) for only 3.35 euros, and I can not live without it! You can use it to either finely cut vegetables (cucumber, radish,…) or also grate black radish (“daikon”). And here is a little salad I made, very fresh and colorful!

Ingredients (for 2-4 people)

- 1 avocado
- 1 black radish
- 1 pomegranate
-  some macadamia nuts

for the vinaigrette:

- 3 tablespoons olive oil or sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons yuzu juice
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Recipe

1. Cut finely the black radish with the mandolin slicer.
2. Crush the sesame in a mortar, place in a bowl, add the yuzu juice and oil. Mix well and marinate the radish slices.
3. Cut the pomegranate in half and remove the seeds.
4. Cut the avocado into cubes and arrange everything on your plate, with the crushed macadamia nuts on top.


Chocolate Legos

The Japanese artist  Akihiro Mizuuchi created molds from legos with which he has shaped many chocolate pieces. These modules allow to create infinite forms, that is if the chocolate doesn’t melt in your hands! Akihiro had fun making small kawaii monsters with white, milk, dark and pink chocolate pieces of different sizes.
