My name is Emmanouela Paradeisanou, I am 26 years old and I come from Greece (Crete). My bachelor degree is on Nutrition and Dietetics (in Thessaloniki, Greece). My thesis was “Comparative study of obesity for kids 7-10 years old at Heraklion of Crete (COSI program)“. I worked 6 months at the General Hospital of Heraklion (PAGNH) as nutritionist – dietitian for my internship. Meanwhile I delivered some lectures in different elementary schools about the “Health Nutrition and right snacks at school”. During all the years of my bachelor degree I was feeling attracted by the sector of design and I was looking for ways to “interfere” somehow in this beautiful world. And one day I found this Master, on Food Design. This last year 2016-2017 I took my Master on “Food Design and Innovation” provided by SPD Scuola Politecnica di Design in Milan. It was a really interesting and innovative program, knowing the different aspects of food and how food can be used in order to transmit messages and its power. My internship was with Mrs Vittorio Castellani aka Chef Kumale, on creating the logo and the whole communication language about his project “Nati per soffriggere” for Cooperativa of Turin Valdocco. Also we had to rethink the design of the space that is about to host the project. From the beginning of May I am working in a food studio “TourDeFork” in Milan. I have not decided yet what exactly I would like to do in the future but I really like food experience and events, But I am really open to ideas and proposes.
