Remember MTV Cribs, where we got a look inside celebs’ homes? Our favourite part was always when the celebrity in question opened up their carefully ordered fridge. A glimpse inside someone else’s refrigerator can be as illuminating as a cheeky glance at their medicine cabinet.
Cool Art feels a bit like this: open up the hefty Sub-Zero fridge doors and peer into eight of Hong Kong’s culinary personalities’ fridges to discover what food means to them. Now in its fifth year, Cool Art’s current theme, Fresh Food Matters, is focused on sustainability, healthy eating and green matters in the world of food.
