Data Cuisine won Gold in the category Data Project at the The Kantar Information is Beautiful Awards 2016. We are thrilled that the project has received such appreciation and honour. We personally want to thank all participants and chefs as well as the organisers. It’s been a great project so far and this is because of you making it (possible). And let’s see what the future brings – there are still so many ideas…

It’s been a busy month for Data Cuisine!
Back in Berlin, we also tried out a new twist to the Data Cuisine idea: a participatory data cuisine event for bloggers, sponsored by Schott Ceran. Together with Fingerfood Berlin and Fransisca Tan, we came up with dish recipes in advance, but prepared the meals together with the participants.
In cooperation with HEK Basel, we will run another Data Cuisine Workshop August 29-30, 2015. Switzerland will surely provide interesting data sets for expressing local data with local food — with the help of a local chef. In this case, we are exceptionally lucky to be working with the renowned chef Thierry Boillat, Chef de Partie at Restaurant Stucki.
The workshop runs two days and is open to everyone who is curious about experimenting with data and food. In case you are in the Basel area end of August – registration is still open!

We are very excited to announce a new edition of the Data Cuisine Workshop! It will take place in Barcelona, June 10-13, 2014, as part of the program around the Big Bang Data exhibition at CCCB, and in coordination with Sónar. For the culinary side of the project, we will collaborate with Sebastian Velilla, a chef who has worked for the Alícia Foundation and is currently involved in the activities of the Torribera Food and Nutrition Campus of the University of Barcelona.
In case you are interested – register soon!
We will keep you updated on the progress of the event!
Can food be a medium? What is the taste of data?
The Data Cuisine Workshop is an experimental investigation on the representation of data with culinary means, or — if you like — edible diagrams. It is an initiative by prozessagenten, process by art and design with data visualization expert Moritz Stefaner.
We research ways to represent local open data in local food, through its inherent qualities such as color, form, texture, smell, taste, nutrition, origin etc.
The workshop is a collaborative research experience, blurring the boundaries between teachers and participants, data and food. At its end, an local data menu is created and publicly tasted.
Maybe your city could be next? We are always interested in further editions — get in touch in case you are interested!
The first ever Open Data Cooking Workshop is over, and we are really happy with how it went — how much we learned about culture, data, people and food!
From learning how to chop properly…
… over plating …
.. and the food actually tasted delicious, too!
But, of course, in the end it all boils down to the data dishes! So if you want to see how facebook friendship networks can be captured in shrimp cocktails or how foreigners spice up Finland, make sure to check out the results of the Open data Cooking Workshop Helsinki.
