Ferran Adrià is a world-famous chef who creatively developed dishes and cooking techniques. In this challenge we will try to work just like Adrià.
What do you need?
- Large sheet of paper and coloured paper
- pens, pencils, pens
- a cucumber, lemon, tomato (= the object)
- cutting board, knife, scissors
Write the name of the object in the middle of the large sheet of paper. What thoughts does this word evoke? Write this down. What do you already know about it? What nutrients are in it? What is it used for? In which dishes is it often found?
Precisely examine the appearance of the object, cut it open and look inside. Try to name all the parts you see and write this on your sheet of paper, you can also draw them. Also take a picture with your phone of one part, think about the shape or angle from which you take the picture.
How does the texture of the object in your mouth feel? How does the appearance of the object affect the taste? Choose two textures of the object and try to draw them on your sheet.
What flavors are all attached to the object? Does each part taste the same? Choose 1 flavor and try to describe it with words. Write the words on your sheet. Now try to draw the chosen flavor as well. What shapes and colours belong to the taste?
How should you customize the object to best show the chosen taste sensation? You may cut into it and destroy it. Also think about the background, which colours are suitable? Use the coloured paper, you can cut in it and use different shapes and colours. Take a picture of the best presentation.
