Mortar & Pestle by Shira Keret Encourages Interactive Cooking

Interactive cooking may make many consider the role technology has come to play in food preparation, but Mortar & Pestle by Shira Keret brings the art of cooking back to one's fingertips.

With so many kitchen appliances that leave a home chef's hands idle, perhaps people need to be brought back down to earth to regain an appreciation for what they eat.

These five sets of manual spice and herb grinders were made as part of the designer's Paraphrase project. Each duo combines a pair of high quality material pieces, exuding exquisite oak, marble, porcelain, glass, silver, iron and brass. Inviting an improved relationship with the food you're preparing, Mortar & Pestle by Shira Keret has been conceived with culinary art in mind.
