Wall of hidden panels installed at Tel Aviv apartment. Interior designer Maayan Zusman and architect Amir Navon designed bespoke carpentry with hidden storage space for a 60-year-old apartment in Tel Aviv.

Wall of hidden panels installed at Tel Aviv apartment

To make the most of the Ein Gedi Street apartment's 55 square metres of space, the pair knocked through existing walls and used wood panels to divide the apartment into rooms. Visitors enter into an open-plan kitchen, living and dining space, which is separated by a section of wooden panelling from the two bedrooms and bathroom – enclosed by a pair of parallel sliding doors.

Herringbone parquet in the living area contrasts smooth cement flooring in the bedroom. A small work space with a desk and chair is set into a niche in the panelled wall, which also contains "hidden" cupboards. A series of round holes in the cupboard adjacent to the living area have been designed to release heat from electronic equipment stored there. "The apartment is pretty small and every centimetre mattered," Zusman told Dezeen. Photography is by Gidon Levin. Whitepaper: The Hygienic Design of Food Industry Brushware.

Consequently, the correct selection of cleaning equipment by the food manufacturing and food service industries is essential to minimise the risk of product contamination, and aid compliance to relevant regulatory, guidance and standard requirements. Thanks to organisations like the European Hygienic Engineering Design Group (EHEDG), and 3-A Sanitary Standards Inc. (3-A SSI), many food manufacturers already appreciate the benefits of using hygienically designed production equipment. Hygienically designed equipment is quicker and easier to clean, and minimises the risk of product contamination by microbes, allergens, foreign bodies etc. This in turn maximises food safety and quality, reduces the risk of expensive product rejection or recall, and minimises food waste.

Quiet and Smart: Vitamix 750. The blender is one kitchen item that comes out from the cabinet at unusual times.

Quiet and Smart: Vitamix 750

Like the coffee pot, it will need to make an appearance in the early morning, at treat times, and dinners. The blender that wakes the house, or kills the conversational mood isn’t the best choice for everyone, and this is where the Vitamix series 750 comes in handy. As powerful as most blenders of the Vitamix line, this blender is quiet, with blades and motor working together in almost silent accord. This is a great model for smoothies, and simple recipes, but it should be used with care. This blender is great for ice cold treats and hot soups. The thick casing of the container is great in that you will not have trouble keeping hot ingredients hot, and icy cold items still icy. Young farmers present a fresh face. A new generation of farmers has been preparing to take over family farms across the country, ready with new ideas and better technology to bring family farming into the modern age.

Young farmers present a fresh face

One such example of these modern farmers are newlyweds Chris and Sara Wood, both of whom have been farming since they were kids, but now, with a farm of their own as well as the added responsibility of helping to maintain Sara's parents' farm, they have found themselves in a position of being able to promote farming through social media. Sara (nee Little) was brought up helping her mom and uncle with their dairy farm, as well as helping her parents farm the few acres they had to themselves.

This past March, Sara graduated from the Agriculture Leadership Program at the University of Guelph, a program design to promote networking among farmers and create leaders in the agricultural community. “It's an 18-month program in leadership development and networking within the ag industry. 5 Smart Kitchen Tools to Help You Cook Up a Perfect Meal.
