Palette for your Palate is an exciting project by Tealeaves and Pantone. In the project they have made a number of edible or drinkable creations together with some of the world’s top culinary and mixology artists. Check it out.
This project has everything I love. Drinks, pastry, great food combined with great design and color. The project is Palette for your Palate and is a collaboration between the tea purveyor Tealeaves and the Pantone Color Institute.
The result is an amazing online exhibition where there are 34 tea-infused creations made using the newly redesigned Whole Leaf Pyramid Teabag collection. Each creation is made by some of the world’s top culinary, pastry and mixology artists. And each creation is based on a Pantone color.
Each creation is displayed on the Palette for your Palate exhibition website. But that is not all, this project keeps on giving. Besides displaying great photos of these creations each one comes with a sound clip of each artist explaining their thoughts behind the dish or drink and a film about it. That’s not enough? Well you also get a full printable Pdf of each creation with photos and a complete recipe.
Still not enough? Well the exhibition also comes with a documentary that explores the potential of color to excite and convey stories and values. It features some of the top names in design and innovation.
We have shared some of the photos and films from the Palette for your palate here in this article but this is only a glimpse of what is available, so go visit the main exhibition today. Parts of these creations is also going on tour at a number of hotels and restaurants in Canada and the US starting this fall. You can check out the full schedule at the Palette for palate website.
