Restaurant El Celler de Can Roca in Girona (Spain) has been awarded two times ‘World’s Best Restaurant’ (2013 & 2015) and has 3 Michelin stars since 2009. On yearly base, 22.500 bottles of wines are being opened in this restaurant. In fact, their cellar treasures more than 40.000 bottles. Unfortunately, most of the bottles end up in the garbage at the end of the night and therefore, the Roca Brothers’ team decided to transform the empty glass bottles of daily service into creative tableware pieces through Roca Recicla. Although introduces last year we love the initiative and we have a similar initiative in the Netherlands, Rebottled. Rebottled also believes that upcycling is the new recycling. They extend the lifespan of wine bottles by making drinking glasses at a workplace of the Salvation Army in Utrecht, The Netherlands. lees verder

Creator, a burger experience! With a Start-to-finish fully automated preparation process to create their gourmet burgers. They soft launched June 2018 in San Francisco, offering customers their first taste of what may just be the future of fast food. At Creator’s heart is a robot kitchen which automatically creates gourmet burgers using haute cuisine techniques of alums from Michelin-starred restaurants including Chez Panisse and Momofuku who worked closely with roboticists from Disney Imagineering, NASA, and Tesla to create it. The result is a burger so precise and gourmet, it can’t practically be made by hand. In fact, they call their burger the freshest burger on the market! For example the beef in the patty doesn’t get ground until after the order is placed. Even the tomatoes, pickles, and onions are sliced crisp to order, buns are sliced in half after the order is placed and the cheese is grated directly onto the bun before it’s melted. Sauce is dispensed down to the milliliter and seasoning is dispensed down to the gram. Creator is located in the San Francisco SOMA district at 680 Folsom Street. lees verder
