Introduction

#materialmenu

"When you remove the barrier of a plate and present each ensemble on the material that inspired it, the fundamental relationship between the natural surfaces and food is inextricable"

This creative endeavour is an artistic exploration of the connections between materials, aesthetics and design, realized in a book of eight conceptual recipes based around the four elements of earth, air, fire and ice.

Inspired by 'The Restaurant' by Caesarstone & Tom Dixon that was presented at Milan’s Salone del Mobile 2016, Francesca Sarti took the idea much further, devising a series of ‘elemental’ recipes for this book, executed as visually striking ensembles that are as pleasurable to look at as to prepare and eat.

The unusual images of food ingredients and utensils, exquisitely styled using Caesarstone work surfaces, captured in arresting photographs are intended to delight and – ultimately – to inspire.

Material Menu: Designs for the Culinary Aesthetic
This book, containing a series of eight recipes, dedicated to the elemental, natural properties shared between food, aesthetics and function was inspired by Caesarstone’s 2016 installation for Milan’s Salone del Mobile.

"It's about all of the senses coming into play: The sonic snap of a crisp pancake; the visual delight of slicing into a blackened cake and discovering its pure, white heart; teasing the taste buds with alternating sweet and salt flavours; the fluffy, sticky texture of meringue – each recipe is a story for the body and the soul," — Francesca Sarti, head of Italian food design studio Arabeschi di Latte.
