Today Greenies are no longer stuck in the past, they’re very much part of the future. Why choose between high-tech and Granny’s haybox when you can have both? The main thing is a healthy lifestyle. The manufacturers of white goods presenting their latest innovations at LivingKitchen have acquired a green conscience too and are combining healthy cooking methods with energy-saving concepts, pollution-free products and sustainable materials. And almost by the by, kitchen manufacturers are coming up with some really beautiful kitchens into the bargain.

Everybody knows how important it is to eat a balanced diet. Terms like fluid balance, glutamate or trace elements have long ceased to be an indication of professional expertise and have been assimilated into our general knowledge. “Organic” has long since spread to the supermarkets, and anyone in search of wellness no longer necessarily has to head for the bathroom but can pamper himself in the kitchen as well.

High-tech, convenience and cooking seem to complement one another without contradiction. Neither the top chefs who spend their days experimenting away in molecular kitchens nor the amateur seem to have any appreciable fear of contact with new technologies. Now that appliance and kitchen manufacturers have adapted to the need for alternative cooking methods, exotic cuisine and eco-friendly kitchen concepts, organic cooks, after discovering the medieval wisdom of Hildegard of Bingen, are starting to discover that of Bosch, Poggenpohl or Miele as well.
