A digital food based provocation -Are you hungry? Check out edgarunddieter!

Do you know the most famous and provocative works of art about food?

Artists make tremendous sacrifices in their lives in order to feed their creative addiction, whether they become financially successful or not. Inspiration comes from action, from experimentation, the chaos, the fire, the big wins, and the big fails. This is why I admire creative minds on how they master the art of the unknown!

Reason enough for me today, to introduce to you a project realized by two hungry artists based in Switzerland & Germany: edgarunddieter was founded by Christoph Dieter Göttel and Markus Edgar Ruf.

Who stands behind edgarunddieter?

Christoph Göttel creates modern art in Basel using his graphic and illustration background as a way to let an image speak for itself. His objective is always to make a clear statement. Find more on Chris Art here.
The other creative mind of the project is Markus Edgar Ruf. He is based in Lörrach and specializes in photography, videography, and graphic design. Find more on his work here.

Together they go viral with a new project combining all of their creative power!

Let’s talk about their project_ May it be a little more?

Food offers the best prerequisites for arts to play wild! And if you give some meat into the hands of two experimental minds as Edgar and Dieter guess what comes out?

Not everything is sausage what we do, but almost everywhere is sausage. When is there too much “sausage” around? This question is addressed in this work. Implemented in an environment that couldn’t be more contradictory and yet suggests a common thread. It is the weariness of everything. The more absurd this connection of the pictorial structure, the greater it draws you into the visual language – edgarunddieter –





Are you curious to get to see their art live or want to buy a piece for your living room? Get in contact here!

For all the ones that are really hungry now and looking for the best sausage in town, check out my food guide (for takeaway of course).

Studio31 Pop-up Le muh Restaurant by Sascha Friedrichs

Discovering a special pop-up restaurant in Zurich close to heaven on level 31 of the Swissotel – Next chance to book it: December 31, 2017!

Studio31 pop-up restaurant took place from 8. –  17. Sept. this year. It’s one of the food places I suggest to go for a special occasion. Invite your special friend, your love or your mother. The atmosphere up here is really unique. Admiring the sun going down reflecting the food art on the plate made this moment memorable.
Up on level 31 of the Swissotel in Zurich Nord, Sascha Friedrichs, Executive Chef of the hotel restaurant Le Muh (15 Gault-Millau-Points) and his staff prepare real genuine food art.

Fresh and local ingredients are used for every dish and prepared with an eye for detail. Every course is accompanied by a delicious wine. Here you eat with your eyes, too. The food does not only look good it offers an authentic and intense taste in every course.

Explore the menu

At the bone matured filet of Charolais cattle with celery, passion fruit, reed beet, nut butter and valle maggia pepper

Char with pea cream, caviar, speck crem and finger limes

Duck breast from the Appenzell with bio egg yolk confit, chanterelles and smoked duck jus

Toblerone Dessert with black currant sorbet, popping sugar crisps (that reminded me my childhood), montélimar nougat and honey cress

The ambience is modern and stylish but not too noble, you feel comfortable.

Enjoy Silvester 2017 close to heaven at Studio31

Since the pop-up is temporary you have to be patient until its next opening. I felt really privileged to be a guest here.
You can book your table and plan your Silvester night over the roofs of Zurich right now. The spaces are limited and well requested. The menu has 7 courses, incl. wine, welcome Champagner for 269  CHF p.p. Find all details here.

I hope to have Studio31 back for further food exploring next year. For more food inspiration check my food guide here.
