Baked in front of your eyes by a robot, the BreadBot makes bread that is fresh, healthy, preservative free and eco-friendly. The BreadBot from the Wilkinson Baking Company mixes, forms, proofs, bakes and cools bread all on its own. The Wilkinson Baking Company debuted the BreadBot last January at the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas. This robot baker, a machine that goes from flour to loaf all on its own, harnesses the marvels of modern technology to take us back to the old world with its artisan bread that is tasty and nutritious. We start seeing more and more robot-like machineries in the hospitality industry and retail, like for example ‘The Creator’, a start-to-finish fully automated preparation process to create gourmet burgers. The BreadBot is a new example of this development. Imagine a BreatBot baking fresh buns in your hotel lobby!    read more

Sometimes you just want to be somewhere else when hearing stories or seeing pictures from others. For example, right now we would love to be in New Zealand to enjoy the summer and the nature but also to try the food at The Chef’s Table at Blue Duck Station. Our former colleague Nynke Bijstra currently works at the pop-up restaurant and has sent some pictures. Here you will experience pure and unique ‘fine dining’ under the stars of Blue Duck Station. The pop-up restaurant is located on the highest point of the station and offers an amazing view over the Tongariro and Whanganui National Parks. The pop-up restaurant already opened its doors on the 11th of January and closes on the 9th of March 2019. Coming winter (in New Zealand) a restaurant will be built on the exact same location which will open its doors summer 2020. If you are by any chance in New Zealand before the 9th of March or in the summer 2020, you could choose to enjoy a 10 course dinner by chef Jack Cashmore at this spot. He worked at different restaurants in Europe,  like for example restaurant ‘In de Wulf’ in Belgium. It must be a unique experience, a 10 course dinner at The Chef’s Table at Blue Duck Station!

The unique design of SPINE Rooftop bar Beirut in Lebanon focuses on the sky. The design was conceived on the idea of ​​avoiding the attributes of the roof design, usually aimed at walls or floors, and instead using an upward-aesthetic lighting structure. ”I wanted to animate the air and the structure merged with the landscape”, says the designer Gregory Gatserelia. The lounge, located at one of the highest buildings at Naccache Seaside Road, G1 Building, opened its doors in June 2018 and is now one of the hotspots in Beirut.
