Therefore, it is necessary to appropriate or invent the utensils intended for the preparation and tasting of the black beverage, some of which find their inspiration in the Levant…

When we remember that at the origin of this newsletter, a famous bottle with an orange adornment inaugurated with a rarely measured moderation the design events which offered the stripes of this weekly, how not to be moved to invest Reims and ESAD to preside over the culinary design DNSEP jury?

The Design & Culinary Master’s, taught by the hands of masters by Germain Bourré and Julie Rothhahn – worthy heirs of Marc Brétillot – cultivates the issues of the creation of edible material and the field of food in a transversal and global way. He introduces the living into designer training, the most intimate, the most shared daily life, and considers that eating is an art: installation, performance, plastic expression are part of the culinary design experienced at ESAD. But it is also a design, which touches on a strong societal theme, which engages our future.

Because the Congratulations of the jury – composed of Anne Cazor, agro-food engineer and doctor in molecular gastronomy, Léo Mariani, food anthropologist, Philippe Mille, head chef at Les Crayères** in Reims and Germain Bourré, culinary designer and coordinator of ESAD’s Design & Culinary Master’s – came to crown ambitious and remarkably executed projects, let us tell you, at coffee time, the extreme satisfaction of tasting an oyster in jelly in balancing on a sardine bone, the crunch of wakame seaweed hidden in iodized breadcrumb sand, the gluttony around some laboratory enzyme, the effervescent vinegar from the foreshore, but above all the pig elevated to the rank of art, presented and ennobled by Bérengère Brault.

The color, she had announced it to us in her memoir, “Cochette” (female of the pig, more precisely a young sow which has not yet given birth) supported a few months ago:

In this thesis we will talk about the pig. This living being is omnipresent in our society. It is a great classic of food: …two out of three French people believe that they could not do without the pig […] It is at the heart of our food, religious, scientific, oral practices and occupies a place of choice in the collective imagination of the world’s population.

My interest in this animal was nourished by my training as a biologist which brought me a great fascination and a great respect for the living. […]

The pig is at the crossroads of the subject of social study and the product of food consumption. The pig covers all times of feeding, the time of breeding, processing and consumption. Thus it constitutes a perfect subject of questioning of culinary design. Studying the pig through the prism of design means finding instruments for critical examination of our modes of meat consumption with the aim of disrupting thought patterns and creating new approaches. In this thesis, we will discuss the evolution of human/pig relations over time in our Western society. We will see that this animal was alternately a sacred animal, a domestic animal then an animal of food, verbal and political instrumentalization. We will discuss the immediate consequences of the status of the pig both on itself and on the environment and society. We will try throughout this thesis to identify the best aspects of the pig to give it back its rightful place in our imagination and on our plate.

[…] Giving the pig back its titles of nobility will allow it to be better consumed and therefore to consume less of it. If we consume less of it, then we will raise less of it. If we raise less of it, then we will raise it better. If we raise it better, then it will bring more well-being to the animal and it will make breeding more sensitive. A more sensitive breeding is a breeding which pollutes less, which respects more the environment and the animals. If the pig is raised better, we can hope that it is also better processed. Transforming it better makes it possible to offer meat that is more interesting from a nutritional and taste point of view, but also emotional. If pork is better in every way, then it will increase in value, it will be eaten better and so on. Giving the pig back its letters of nobility also means allowing society not to claim it to defend ideas or promote attitudes that have nothing to do with true porcine nature. It would be a question of recognizing the animal for what it is, of giving it a look that is adjusted. Redefining one’s relationship to the pig means starting to redefine one’s relationship to the living, and this, I believe, is fundamental in times of ecological crisis and crisis of the living. »

Returning to the heart of the charcuterie subject and its material, the designer, like any good Florentine passionate about the “Marble or pâté de tête” game, worked the chopped flesh of the sausages like cracked or ribboned marbles, managing to produce Red or Black Marinace, Baltic Brown, Kashmir Gold or Juparna Colombo, like so many luxurious display blocks.

Striving to provoke emotion, she tries to invent new expressions such as: ” Verrat Soie ” in reference to the skin of the pig which is covered with silk – silk belonged to the skin of the pig long before designating the substance luxurious secreted by the worm! “Home pig ” in reference to the domestic pig with which we have an emotional anchorage in the same way as the cat,

or “ Piglet/Porcelain ” in reference to the fragility of the sow’s young, which must be handled with care like the fine crockery inspired by the latter’s vulva.

From this immaculate and delicate material, it produces sausage dryers – molded and perforated plates – which allow their natural flavoring by the insert of herbs, or crumpled and backlit trays to reveal the glowing complexion of thin slices of ham . The latter which could not hang in your Italian kitchen, without its silk tea towel with the patterns of the variegated coats of the different porcine species!

Racks of pork that you will now wear around your neck, or offer furoshiki style around a real blackened, emptied and stuffed snout, to grate on your roasted apples, at the price of a black diamond from Périgord!
