Papercup Beirut

A Delicious Life Book Launch
Posted by Gestalten—06/2013

Save the Date! Our partner shop Papercup celebrates the launch of A Delicious Life together with the editors Marie Le Fort and Sven Ehmann. The other event partners, who are also presented in the book, include the Lebanese food entrepreneurs: 961 Beer, Karen Chekerdijan Studio, and Tawlet Souk El Tayeb.

A Delicious Life is an inspiring showcase of today’s new food movement and the people behind it. Creative young people who used to want to work at start-ups, advertising agencies, or investment banks are now increasingly likely to become organic farmers, beekeepers, speak-easy bartenders, or owners of mom-and-pop grocery stores. Inspired by heartfelt passion and an uncompromising commitment to quality, a new generation of entrepreneurs from around the world is putting their skills to work at preserving local culinary traditions, brewing the best beer, preparing exceptional marmalades, or rescuing heirloom varieties of apples.

Browse the book in our shop or at Papercup's launch on June 14th. Read more about this partner shop and check out our interview with the owner Rania Naufal here.
