Iftach Gazit is a student designer who created a unique set of food bags that are meant to be cooked with an appliance that's found outside of the kitchen.

The vacuum-sealed 'Sous La Vie' packaging (made from waterproof paper) takes its inspiration from the tradition of sous-vide cooking, and makes it possible for people to toss a food bag in the washing machine along with their laundry. As Gazit explains: "Instead of following a sous-vide recipe and cooking a piece of meat at 58˚C for two and a half hours, just set your washing machine to 'synthetics' for a long duration programme. Cooking vegetables? Set your machine to 'cotton' for a short duration programme."

Sous La Vie prototypes feature the "cooking" instructions on the bags in the same way that washing tags are included on pieces of clothing.
