Silk Cooking

Massoud Hassani proves that sometimes the best new ideas come from the past. With his Silk Cooking kitchenware, he invites you on a modern culinary adventure inspired by the ancient cooking techniques of his Afghan homeland. First, there’s a pebble-filled pan; bury the ingredients beneath the stones and heat for succulent meat. Other reinterpretations include: a cast iron and clay pot to whip up fresh bread in four minutes, a watermelon juicer and finally, a pitcher and dish set for the communal washing of hands. With this series, Hassani provides a gentle reminder that contemporary cooking doesn’t have to involve stacks of high-tech apparatus.
