fast food slowly

A set of tableware by designer Pearl Chung helps you slow down and enjoy your food – even if it is from McDonalds or the like.

According to Pearl:

“The pleasure of Fast Food exists as I can still see people enjoy eating it because it is delicious. In Slow Food culture, apart from the quality of food, it is important that whether people really enjoy what they are eating and whether they can find the pleasure from it. Therefore, if people really enjoy the process of food consumption, no matter what kind of food it is, all kinds of food can actually be Slow Food. I initiated a task to design a set of products to encourage people enjoy their Fast Food consumption and to have more sitting down occassion with the others while eating Fast Food.”

The design is part of a collection of works from students at Central St. Martins. You can view more on their flickr photostream.

    ok give me a break… McDonald’s does not deserve a place on anyones table, or for that matter on the front seat of a car. It needs to stay wrapped in biodegradable paper and chunked in the nearest trash can. Try fast food like fresh vegetables, quick stir fried (not deep fried) , sautéed mushrooms, then put it in attractive table ware. This kind of meal can be prepped and served in the time it takes to say “would you like fries with that?” I agree.. slow down and eat your meal with the ones you love.
