MRE // Henry Heargraves

MRE (Meals Read to Eat) are military combat rations provided to soldiers in the field of duty. Due to their unappetizing taste they have earned the nickname of ‘meals rejected by everyone.’

With this project, a collaboration between Chuck George, Jimmy Pham and Henry Hargreaves, they wanted to reimagine the meals and plate in a manner of a Michelin starred meal. In essence, taking the worst food, provided to the bravest people and visually elevate it as if it were being served in one of the world’s most revered restaurants.


// I MRE (piatti pronti da mangiare) sono le razioni militari fornite ai soldati in missione. Grazie al loro gusto (e aspetto) non invitante, si sono guadagnati ormai il nome di “piatti rifiutati da chiunque”.

Con questo progetto, una collaborazione tra Chuck George, Jimmy Pham and Henry Hargreaves, si è voluto riimmaginare i piatti e i relativi impiattamenti pensandoli come fossero serviti in un ristorante stellato Michelin. In pratica, si è trattato di prendere il cibo peggiore (fornito alle persone più coraggiose), ed elevarlo immaginandolo servito in uno dei ristoranti più ossequiati del mondo.
