Some of our most delicious and memorable food experiences often come from eating without cutlery. Eating with our bare hands, sucking our fingers or even licking a plate are natural behaviours
We started our design process by 3D-printing a scanned finger, and giving it a handle
From digital technology to traditional crafts
After many failed trials, we found a material and technique with which we could produce a similar shape to the finger. Glass allowed us to find a balance between tactile qualities, visual aesthetics, and manufacturing capacities. The glass "Goûte" is made by Glass Blower Richard Price, in the United Kingdom
We ate everything we came across with it:
chocolate mousse, yogurt, Nutella, porridge, hummus … The glass Goûte made the experience of eating creamy foods much more mindful and pleasurable
Finding a name:
goût french |gu|
taste or gustation.
One of the 5 senses that informs about the molecular properties of food.
The sensation of flavour perceived in the mouth on contact with a substance.
goutte french |gut|
drop (of liquid).
A small round or pear-shaped portion of liquid that hangs or falls.
goûte french |gut|
“Goûte cela” - “Taste this”.
Modelled after the finger, Goûte is a teardrop-shaped glass wand designed to eat creamy foods like peanut butter, Nutella, yogurt, or chocolate mousse.
This hand-crafted utensil enhances creaminess and sweetness perception, heightens the value of food and makes for a more mindful eating experience.
