Illustrated Mediterranean Kitchen Tools
In this Illustrated Mediterranean Kitchen Tools blog series, I spend some time illustrating some of the culinary gadgets and cooking utensils used across the different Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food cultures. These include Italian pasta makers, Moroccan Tajines, handmade Lebanese Kibbeh grinders, Turkish coffee makers, and more. These food illustrations are closely related to three other Illustrated Blog Series that were launched earlier on this blog, namely, Illustrated Travel Stories, Illustrated Italian Recipes, and Illustrated Middle Eastern Recipes. The series covers both traditional and vintage Middle Eastern, North African, and Mediterranean kitchen tools that originate in different time periods, including the 50s, 60s and 70s. Traditional, tribal, and folk cooking utensils used in different urban and rural communities across the MENA region, will also have their place in this updateable blog series. These food and travel illustrations also tackle other aspects of the food cultures featured on this blog, including table-settings and handcraft traditions that surround the making and usage of these culinary tools.
