What is Next Nature?

With our attempts to cultivate nature, humankind causes the rising of a next nature, which is wild and unpredictable as ever. Wild systems, genetic surprises, autonomous machinery and splendidly beautiful black flowers. Nature changes along with us.

FishBowl – Ready made Meal

FishBowl – Ready made Meal

After cooking lobsters alive, picking your own living fish in a restaurant and serving your rabbit for Christmas dinner, now comes a wonderful new creation: the FishBoil. This wonderful bowl includes a living fish, which you can feed and nurture until you find it big enough to serve as an appetite. Serve some parsley flavoured goldfish as entree course at any special occasion. Or how about surprising some visiting family with chamomile goldfish after you children have taken care of it? It is as easing as feeding, cleaning and putting the bowl on the gas pit.

The FishBoil is available in your supermarket at the ‘Excellence’ department. The FishBoil is a combination of a fishbowl and a pan and includes one goldfish. AH also has a selection of water plants that will flavor the water and give your that nice taste. And because you took care of your fish you can be sure it will not contain any harming or unhealthy ingredients. It is just like growing your own garden vegetables! The FishBoil is available now for the special price of only € 24,95! Enjoy your meal!
Method of Preperation:
- Feed your fish for at least four weeks until appropriate size is reached.
- Refresh water before boiling.
- Start boiling the bowl on a small fire to let the fish adjust to the temperature.
- After 5 minutes of preheating, use a high flame to start boiling your fish for 30-40 minutes.
- Use garnishing to decorate the plates.

    i think this “product” is brilliant! of course i would never use it for it’s intended purpose, but i would love to have this as a conversation piece in my house! are they available to purchase? please please please say yes!

    I’m not sure I like this idea. I honestly do have a hard time dealing with the lobster thing as is. I just feel that I could never eat something I raised. I guess I’ll never be a farmer.

    OMG that is horrable to do. I would never eat a pet expecialy 1 that i raised

  4. Momo

    that is the sickest, crulest thing i have ever seen!!!! the poor little fish that is all happy and well taken care of just gets eaten one day?!?!?! HORRIBLE

    How incredibly sick and twisted. Today my darlings we are going to watch your pet suffer while we raise the temperature surrounding it to a painful boiling. And then we shall sit down and dine upon the flesh of your once beloved animal. Way to teach cruelty by manufacturing a torture device. GO EAT YOUR FUCKING VEGETABLES AND STOP TORTURING ANIMALS

    Way to be ignorant Jake/MK.
    Goldfish can hardly remember 15 seconds into the past, and this is nothing different than the way every other food animal is raised.

    Chill out people. No one eats goldfish.
