‘bread from scratch’ by designer mirko ihrig is a reaction to the fact that many people are detached from knowing where their food comes from. conceived as a series of baking accessories, the project visualizes the process of bread baking and is used as a metaphor for culinary production. the outcome is a collection of objects that are needed to make bread from scratch; it consists of a mill to grind flour, a jar to cultivate a sourdough, a bowl to mix the ingredients, a board to knead the dough, a paddle to transfer the loaves and an oven to finally bake the bread.

‘fast food and other processed industrial foods determine our daily lives,’ says ihrig. ‘bread is one of our oldest foods and even today it is the most essential and universal food, equally eaten by rich and poor in most parts of the world; bread has become the symbol of food.’
