Introducing Best Stealth Health; our awardwinning tableau of wholesome bites, sweet stuff and liquid assets presented on poseworthy podiums and vessels.

The table toppers
To set off our spread of stealthily healthy edibles to perfection, we needed a winning tableau. Ours celebrates the rigorously architectural forms many table accessories have taken of late, including Studio Swine’s brushed silver condiment set, Bloc Studios’ modular marble podiums and Pietro Russo’s brass fruit stand, set upon Casesarstone’s ‘Frozen Terra’ surface.

The sweet
KUF Studios has made an art of creating trompe l’oeil cakes that look like soli objects. Its latest venture is terrazzo chocolate, seen here coating cakes filled with rhubarb, white chocolate and rum ganache. Not only does it look like the real deal, but the chocolate packs a nutritive punch as the algae-based colourings are drenched in vitamins and minerals.

The liquid refreshment
Non-alcoholic drinks brand Seedlip has been working with pioneering mixing masters, such as London’s Ryan Chetiyawardana and Barcelona’s Giacomo Giannotti, to push the low-alcohol agenda. It has recently published a book featuring 100 spirited mocktail ideas. We picked the Eliza, made from Seedlip’s Spice 94 and charred cassia bark, for our saintly spread.

The savoury
Chef Thierry Marx and designer Ora-ïto are changing the fast food game with Marxito, a pink-hued street food diner near Paris’ Champs-Élysées. Inspired by Japanese dorayaki pancakes, the Marxito sandwich contains a range of fillings, such as avocado, smoked mozzarella, tofu and pickled radish. All ingredients come from small or local producers.
