Tools for Food: The Objects that Influence How and What We Eat
A new book by Corrine Mynatt is for all the tool lovers who embrace functional beauty.
The book’s content ranges from a 4th century Korean fermenting crock to a hyper-stylised, 21st century Italian lemon juicer, showing how each and every tool for food that has been made in part contributes to the way we eat, cook and live today.
Organised by function – such as Prep & Wash, Weigh & Measure, Cut & Chop – the book features 250 of the best loved, most intriguing and indisputably iconic kitchen utensils, exploring everything from their historical relevance as a design object to their place in our homes today.
Filled with little-known facts and fascinating photographs and illustrations of objects throughout, Tools for Food examines the relationship between cooking and culture in the most expansive of ways.
