One of the things we love best about visiting farmers' markets is the experience of color, shape, and texture. So we were absolutely delighted to see the work of Deborah Trainer, whose Draw Cook Eat project includes pictures and recipes from an entire year at the Hollywood farmers' market in Los Angeles.
After a particularly great meal or superb eating experience, I treasure a little slice of that memory by saving a scrap of paper from the meal. Do you collect any dining ephemera? Brilliant ideas scrawled on restaurant napkins definitely fall under this category. Read on to hear what little odds and ends I've squirreled away for trips down memory lane...
From zesters, peelers, poachers to corers, coolers and choppers — we love our kitchen tools! We spend a lot of time and money selecting and using the perfect tools to executive our favorite dishes perfectly. Now there's a piece of artwork that no doubt belongs right in the kitchen, honoring the tools we love so much.
How do you build a cupcake? Well, you start with a colorful liner, then add some eggs, sugar, and flour. Then choose a swirled top and some sprinkles! That's the story, anyway, with this bright, clever poster created by two artists for a friend.

A cup of black beans. Six steamed dumplings. Three potatoes. Stefen Chow's photo series The Poverty Line captures what someone living on 3.28 yuan (about 49 cents) could buy in China, putting into pictures the stark statistics of those living in poverty.

Does anyone know of a company that sells large decorative magnets? Not necessarily something that will cover the entire surface — I'm thinking some sort of large swirl or flower design? A refrigerator accessory, if you will. I've searched online but haven't found what I'm looking for.
From aprons to artwork, we've rounded up these fun kitchen accessories that help the vegan cook express themselves in their kitchen decor. The decal shown in the first image above is a fantastic way to incorporate artwork into the kitchen. See the rest of our picks after the jump:
Soup Week is almost over, but we're going to leave you with a little memento: Seven prints, each with their own creative interpretation of a recipe for soup. From spicy Chinese soup to potage aux carottes, here are some recipes to hang (perhaps right above your stove?) and to inspire.
Ever since Leela showed us her artful chopstick collection, with chopsticks from her travels displayed in a kitchen art installation, I have been really struck by the idea of showing off chopsticks in the kitchen! Here's another way to do it: A fabulous little chopstick holder from Vienna-based designers Less&More.
