Now if I could just invent digital taste buds…


Anyone who has followed my blog for a while knows that I love to cook and get a lot of inspiration from the process. I recently started writing another blog on cooking and that process made me realize how few well designed sites there are for cooking equipment and ingredients. The best one I have found actually just launched for Chocolatier Pierre Marcolini. The site has a really nice minimal design direction and interface that consistently heros the product throughout the site. I also like the way the design will dynamically adjust to different window sizes so the placement of the site elements always stay well positioned in relationship to the photography. It is surprising that for a subject matter that is so photography rich that you don’t find more sites that take advantage of the material. If you have any favorites post it in the comments.

    I love that they decided to go minimal in their design. I think that the chocolate is enough eye candy (no pun intended) for anyone who visits the site.
