Esst Misfits! Food Aktion/17.12.2011/Markthalle Neun/Xberg

Für die Deutsche Version bitte runterscrollen...

Yesterday me and my Misfits celebrated the first premier at Markthalle Neun in Berlin

Xberg and it was a great success! I'm so incredibly happy that all the beautiful carrot 

misfits were sold and all of my "Forget-me-not-roasties" were eaten. 

The carrot misfits I collected after the harvest in Teltow (at Teltower Rübchen Hof,,  were left behind because they don't fit into the

norm we expect from produce and therefore become waste. In fact 30-40% of a harvest 

gets wasted like that today!! Therefore we never get to see those incredible shapes nature

produces anymore. It was such a bummer to see what was left out there. But now they got

all the love they deserve and that is what makes me very very delighted!

Thank you all for being there, supporting me and helping making this all happen!

And to all of you who have missed the premier ... don't worry, we will be back soon!

Gestern war ich mit meinen Misfits zu Gast in der Markthalle Neun in Xberg und mit 

großem Stolz darf ich verkünden: die ganze Aktion war ein voller Erfolg! Den Möhren-

Misfits, die uns heutzutage nie begegnen, da sie nicht in die vorherrschende Norm passen,

wurde alle Liebe zu teil, die sie verdient haben und am Ende des Tages war mein Stand restlos ausverkauft und leer gefuttert.

Ein ganz großes herzliches DANKE an alle, die mich besucht haben, mitgeholfen haben

und natürlich auch an das Markthalle-Team, die uns den Ort zur Verfügung gestellt haben!

Und die, die es diesmal nicht geschafft haben zu kommen ...

don't worry! We will be back!! :)

Here as promised a few links revolving the subject
Hier wie versprochen ein paar Links zum Thema:

there will be more in the near future!

Hello hello, welcome to this very fresh blog! 
Here you will find out  
about me, Tanya, the product design student and how I fell in love with crooked vegetables. That much, that over the last half a year I dedicated a lot of my time to those beloved vegetables. I became a huge collector, which wasn't always easy, since the vegetables I was looking for are the forgotten and abandoned ones. They are the CULINARY MISFITS. They don't fit in any standard norm and therefore we never get to see them anymore. Instead they get wasted. Because today we want the perfect body, the perfect skin, the perfect nose, the perfect everything ... and of course we also want the perfect carrot, too!

So this is what this project here is about. It's meant to raise awareness about how we treat our food, how much we waste and how perfect this world really is. It is also my bachlors project, by the way! Which is coming to it's end. But how better could it end than with a new beginning?!

 After doing months of research about our food culture and being intensely shocked I was wondering how I could raise awareness about the fact that we waste about half of our food and decided that I want to take those forgotten veggies and bring them to the people. And this is what I am planning to do tomorrow. So I propably should go to bed right now...

So please check back here every once in a while. Over the Christmas holidays I will keep feeding this blog with some interesting links I came across while doing my research, I will be posting recipes and also put up some more of my lovely vegetables I found along the way!
