YOUTH 08 - THE FOOD EDITION

Last month we brought you sex and p*rn in the modern world. This month we are serving a different type of p*rn… (no, not that, get your mind out of the gutter) Food p*rn. We all do it; there is no need to be ashamed. Food has taken on a huge importance in people’s lives lately. And not just in the sense that people have gotten super into themselves and what they put in their body #MyBodyIsATemple, but in the sense that it is almost a new type of social currency.

Kevin Powell is one of the two minds behind the Dublin Cafe Meet Me in the Morning. A cafe in Dublin? What?? Well, what if we told you that this cafe uses foraged foods?

FOOD P*RN

YUIJA DREAMS OF SHOESHI

At just 18, aspiring artist Yujia Hu had to leave school. “As the eldest of the brothers I had to manage the family business.” That was about 10 years ago, when his family decided to open a Japanese takeaway in Milan. So, rather than give up on his dream, Yuija decided to make art you can eat. Being a huge fan of the NBA, he started to create sushi replicas of the most popular sneakers the sport has ever seen… and, thus, Shoeshi was born.
