Another month is rapidly disappearing, which must mean … time for another round up of my Love, Likes, Bits and Bobs. Even when I’m up to my ears in recipe testing for my new book, I still somehow manage to sneak in some time for browsing the web for inspiration (distraction = inspiration, right??).

Stories told via pasta, sugar, cake, liquorice, jelly and all sorts of other ingredients? Sounds like my kind of thing. I’d love to see The Food Project: The Shape of Taste exhibition at MART, in Italy. Pairing elements of design with food, the exhibition sparks a conversation about how we see food. Is it purely just something that sustains us? Can a meal be considered a work of art? What direction is food headed in the future? The exhibition features the works of some of the world’s most innovative designers and foodies, including Philippe Starck and jelly creators extraordinaires Bompas and Parr.

Even if you’re not a kid, the books by André Hellé will be a joy to look at (and also a great way to start reading French too). Born in 1871, André Hellé was a jack of all (creative) trades. Illustrator, artist, children’s toys and furniture designer, and stage designer – Hellé worked in a world where imagination and storytelling ruled. Today, his work remains relatively unknown, so flipping through his books is almost like discovering a little secret to enjoy all on your own. Check out André’s work here. Until June 10, 2013, le musée du jouet de Poissy (outside of Paris) is hosting an exhibition of André Hellé’s toys and games.

1. The Art of Coffee via Maria from Brainpickings
I love this vintage homage to the world of coffee dating back to 1961 and produced for the Coffee Institute of America. “The simple recipe for perfect… water, coffee and time. Sending its glow into our lives around the clock. Starting …
