I don’t know if anyone remembers a series by Martin Parr called, Signs of the Times. He explored the, ‘delicate matter of the nation’s taste’.
Filming inside people’s homes he recorded their commentary on why they’d bought certain objects. It was excruciating but compulsive viewing, silently making judgments on people because of the things that they owned.
If you look in my food cupboard I wonder what you’d think. I have to admit that ‘tasteful’ pieces are few and far between as in most supermarkets you have to look really hard for a beautiful object. A couple in cereals, chocolate, tea, soft drinks and preserves about sums it up (serious apologies if I’ve missed someone out, I’ve just remembered a great one in sausages and obviously taste is totally subjective).
Anyway, in the spirit of being Saucy, I thought we’d run a couple of polls. We’d love your ideas please on: 1) the most beautiful food brand (I can’t say sexy food brand because I’m convinced everyone will say GÜ) 2) the most beautiful food brand that you’ve had the longest relationship with.
So, I’ll go first 1) I’m going to go Bottle Green and 2) definitely Green & Blacks
