Bringing food design and animal design together, Marije Vogelzang has extended her “Fake Meat” project to include a new animal, the Christpila.
Dutch eating designer Marije Vogelzang started a project titled “Fake Meat” in response to the meat substitutes offered in supermarkets, often situated among ‘real’ meat products. The project is inspired by a variety of vegetarian animals created using food types, such as Tofu to resemble and even taste like a specific type of meat.
Vogelzang’s latest addition to the project is the Christpila, a species found in the Northern parts of Scandinavia. The small ball shaped animal’s diet consists of nuts and cranberries, which naturally fills the Christpila with a delicate stuffing. The Christpila was created to serve as a delicious treat over the festive season.
Vogelzang’s “Fake Meat” project sees each animal accompanied by a detailed recipe for preparation, a serving suggestion and the recommended amount of people each dish will serve.
