28 grams of happiness

Why do we like a certain food? Will healthy food make us feel happier? And if so, how can we make the healthy foods taste better? If depression and anxiety can be a result of an unhealthy intestinal flora, how can we improve that? And why is chocolate so tasty and does it really make us happier? What does food do to our brain and can we anticipate the effects? Could we get happier and smarter by picking the right things to eat?



By translating scientific research into the world of food, food design studio The Eatelier & creative chef PIPPENS will answer to these questions by creating an eye opening, educational, exciting, and sensorial lunch & dinner experience.

Surrounding the food experience is the exhibition 28 grams of happiness curated by JUSTINE KONTOU.  This joyful, sensorial exhibition, experiments with colours, shapes and materials to create an environment that also brings people in a positive state of mind.  It will present how art and design can provoke a sense of wonder, luck, content or gratefulness. Bringing the total experience to a complete journey in pursuit of happiness.
