@ VOL 1
ON MAY 29, 2008
Nik Mavromatis speaks on the culinary arts in a manner that one might be more prone to compare with chemistry. As Nik says, the culinary arts are more so a craft than an art, and he shows us the current state of food-related technology, and gives us an inside look at some techniques chefs are using in the kitchen to tantalize your tastebuds.

@ VOL 40
ON JUN 13, 2013
Karin Sandin is a graduate of Malmstens. Rather than focus on a piece of furniture as her final project, she investigated furniture wax; making a cookbook for those keen to make their own wax at home from everyday ingredients. Her work takes the form of a beautifully illustrated 'cookbook' illustrating not only the processes involved in this humble substance but displaying the ingredients in a series of attractive tableaus.

PKN Maastricht Vol. 2
The city of Maastricht recently hosted its second PechaKucha Night, again with a terrific lineup of presenters -- you can view streaming video of all the presentations here. Organizer Martijn Kagenaar reports. After the overwhelming success of PKN’s January debut in Maastricht, our audience didn’t have to wait long for a new PKN. March 20th, about 250 visitors saw speakers from six nations: Australia, Belgium, Croatia, Germany, USA, and even some from the Netherlands. In AINSI, 1 kilometer from Belgium and 20 kilometers from Germany, an international crowd got together for 12 presentations. They saw and heard about life in the roof gutter, singing bridges, and a journey to the moon. Maastricht’s mayor was delighted, as was the well known writer of "The Creative City," Charles Landry. He was our very special guest, hosted by Mrs. Odile Wolfs, cultural delegate at the Province of Limburg. The day after, we were her guests in a masterclass at TEFAF, the world’s leading Art Fair in Maastricht. Charles inspired his Maastricht students for one day to think about crossing borders in order to become a real creative region. Maastricht is a candidate to be Cultural Capital of Europe in 2018. Another fun part of PKN Maastricht is the PechaKitchen, which Martijn describes as the "speakers-only after party: a cooking workshop, a few weeks after the event. There we can look back on the presentations, look forward, and make further plans to co-operate with each other." Below, photos from the event -- see more in this Flickr photoset. PKN Maastricht Vol. 3 will take place June 20.
This presentation goes out to all the foodies out there, as Nik Mavromatis introduces us to new ways of cooking, while at the same time sharing ideas on how to create new tastes. It was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Christchurch Vol. 1.

Global Cities Week Coverage Continues
Just a note to say that coverage of last week's Global Cities Week will indeed continue on the blog -- we've got lots of great reports and photos to share -- but we've had to postpone it a bit so we can finish up a nice project that we'll be able to talk more about next week (hint: it relates to an anniversary that is just around the corner). The photo above was from Gothenburg's GCW event, with full report and photos here.
For the Love of Astronomy, Inspiring People to Cook Through Workshops, and a Tease from Chelmsford
Presenters In his presentation (from PKN Hyderabad Vol. 9), Neil Ghosh shares his love for astronomy, and takes us on a tour that covers different aspects of the science, tying it to his own personal learning of it. Julia Bondarchuk is the owner of the cookery club and shop Edoque, and in her presentation (in Russian, from PKN St. Petersburg Vol. 20) she talks about her cooking parties and workshops, where cooking turns to a game, using culinary construction sets. The master classes and workshops have the goal of inspiring people to cook and to save time when doing so. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is whiskerlicious, with the wonderful illustrated poster for the upcoming PKN Mendoza Vol. 6, pictured above. Photos The city of Chelmsford hasn't had its first PKN yet -- although we expect that will happen soon -- but here's what appears to be a bit of... guerrilla teasing? It was found on Instagram, with the tags #pechakucha, #chelmsford, and #20x20. Calendar Thursdays tend to be the night of choice for PKNs, and we have another busy one tonight (September 6): PKN Barnsley Vol. 5, PKN Dunedin Vol. 15, PKN Svendborg Vol. 2, PKN Singapore Vol. 5, PKN Santiago Vol. 3, and PKN Budapest Vol. 28. Tomorrow, you can catch PKN Sioux Falls Vol. 4 and PKN Bangor, Maine Vol. 6.
