The Internet has changed how the world functions. The tradition, culture, food, lifestyle that were once stacked up in the closet has found its breakthrough, a way to flow and blend across geographical boundaries. It has seen a new world and is in a phase of exploring various avenues. People are experimenting with multiple cuisines; while keeping their culture intact.
With the Internet, paving the way for new pastures, social media has opened up many horizons. The chief ingredient of life is food. What you eat, taste and relish have a lot to do with the way you live life. Most important is from where it comes and how it is cooked. It is also equally necessary for you to showcase your food and who else than Ellementry to help you do that.
Talking to food isn’t easy!
With multiple social media platforms floating over the place, food photography has taken a new perspective. Everything has been taken care of during food display, from the choice of dishes, amount of food colour combination, presentation, and design.
What is there in covering food?
Covering food should not be a big deal! Or Should it? You could be right in a way. Good taste and hygienic food is a combination; people want to have. A healthy meal brings out the fit you. Cloches are used to cover food and often a bell-shaped dome hence the word. The word has its roots from the French dictionary; which means bell. Yes! You heard it right.
The food covered at a buffet or a bell-shaped glass covering sweets at your favourite sweet-vendor or a restaurant is all a part of the French cloche. How fancy it sounds, isn’t it? It comes in aluminium, copper, glass, granite, silver material and Ellementry offers you cloches made with a combination of glass and wood or glass and marble.
Protecting food in the right manner has never been easy. Either you do not find the right fit or at times the match is not correct. The food industry confines itself to aluminium or steel cloches to make things look right. The usual mundane way of covering food often makes one guess what might be beneath the cover? The metal cloches come with their weight leaving the gourmets to go through the pain of lifting heavy metal.
What was thought as a simple cover to protect food and preserve its taste and quality has come a long way. Unlike other areas, it has torn itself from the boredom and emerged as a niche and designed itself to fit the use, shape, and style. It has made its mark in the food industry and adds its charm to food photography.

To represent and bring things to life is an artwork and a challenge in itself.
People are turning back to using earthen pots and kitchenware and adopting healthy cooking techniques. These techniques have been prevailing from medieval age and have found its roots back in the household kitchens. Elementary has been following these techniques by using organic materials to make hand made cloches. The ceramic-glass and the wood-glass combination cloches offered by Ellementry add class to your Instagram pictures.
