Savory book wishes

My clients Niels & Grete who are organic egg producers have learned me a lot about organic poultry farming, chickens’ wellbeing and needs and funny moods. My fridge always contains lots of their eggs and I make all kinds of Eggs-dishes – but I would love to add the above inspiration: CHICKEN and EGG by Janice Cole to my cook book self. I don’t know if we ever get our own chickens in our garden (read: need more time!), but if you are planing on having chickens this book is also very helpful. In Denmark we have Signe Wenneberg – she is an fantastic inspiration + expert on gardening and how to get started with poultry farming at home. Find her books at her website (all in Danish).

Yes, please, add more Feast and veggie colors into our kitchen… I especially find it hard to be inspired during the dark winter time. We do not have that many fresh, exotic vegetables here in Denmark during the wintertime (I like to eat and shop local + organic). I think FEAST – generous vegetarian meals for any eater and every appetite by Sarah Copeland will add some new + colorful energy to my vegetarian winter kitchen.

The last book: Waffles – sweet, savory, simple – by Tara Duggan. Well, I might getting old. I’m not and has never been a great fan of aebleskiver and now is the time get it OUT. Aebleskiver is a small fried round sweet “dumpling” cake-thing we Danes eat from now until Christmas. Again and again during December. With sucker, jam… sweet with sweet on – I’m not a fan! (Sorry mom!). But I love crepes (with basic toppings: lemon juice + sucker) and I have a thing for waffles with fresh berries or a splash of simple dark, bitter, thick chocolate sauce. I think it is about time to add a new tool in my kitchen: a waffel maker (Santa: this one or this one please!). And the above book!

 

Award Nominated

Yummi Design er nomineret til BEDSTE MADEMBALLAGE 2013 af MAD+MEDIER for design og kommunikation til Niels & Grete’s Økologiske Æg. HURRA!

Niels & Grete har været 2 år under vejs, et drømme projekt som jeg fik frie hænder til at bygge kommunikation og grafisk koncept til. Modigt af kunderne, Niels og Grete Riis, som opgav deres produktion til landets største æggepakkeri for at springe ud på usikker grund med egen produktion og eget pakkeri.

Jeg fandt tegnegrejet frem for at få idéerne til at flyde frit og gik på opdagelse i både London, New York og Paris, for at finde inspiration og formsprog frem til en visuel kommunikation – som ikke er set før til æg. Se mere design her.

Det børne-tegnede univers opstod og gav mening, fordi det vækker følelser og det fortæller, og da vi fik navnet på plads var universet komplet og lige til at hælde over indlægssedler, website, læringsmaterialer, spil og meget andet laver (næsten) sig selv! Hertil kom fotograf Daniel Stjerne med sine smukke, fortællende billeder til hjemmesiden og ved min side har Katrine Petersen hele tiden ramt stil og alle tonerne med udarbejdelse af kommunikations strategi, PR og tekster.

Efter 4-5 måneder i Føtex, Bilka og Døgn Netto, bliver Niels & Grete økologiske æg købt af flere og flere og flere, fordi bakkerne skaber opmærksomhed og genkendelighed hos forbrugeren. Læs og lær mere om Niels & Grete og deres høns her.

I was asked half a year ago if I would make design for an organic eggs packaging. It has been some long and exciting months since then. You do not just bump into the big supermarkets and get your products on the shelfs. But Niels & Grete took a design portfolio with them and they succeed – Dansk Supermarket wanted their eggs (find shops here)! The result of a lot of communication strategies, work with some very skilled webexperts, photographers and Yummi Design’s pr + communication expert Katrine, Niels & Grete’s Organic Eggs came on supermarket shelves this week. It hasn’t been a difficult process because working with such passionated people as Niels & Grete are incredibly rewarding. One thing is they are so passionated about their hens, and organic farming but they are professionals and not afraid to jump into something new and to stand out. It is such a great pleasure to help introduce organic fresh, quality eggs from happy hens. Visit Niels & Grete and their hens on their farm in Hinge – right here. Enjoy!
