Blow Dough by Omer Polak

Blow Dough featured as part of Jerusalem Design Week’s Food Lab.



Estate agents have used the smell of freshly baked baguettes to sell houses for years, but Omer Polak wants his light and airy loaf to raise our daily bread to the realm of design. For Blow Dough, a feature of Jerusalem Design Week’s Food Lab, Polak inflated edible balloons – together with designer Michal Evyatar and chef Erez Komorovsky – made from colourful dough infused with herbs and a selection of vegetable juices. Pressure from the industrial blowers they employed forced the dough through a ring (sadly not of fire), causing it to burst into a ready-to-eat savoury treat within seconds.
