Fully sustainable ‘pop-up’ house

Located at Melbourne's Federation square, the Greenhouse-Future Food System is a self-sustaining, closed loop, two-bedroom home that will shelter, feed and provide energy for its inhabitants. The human driven system will mimic nature - upcycling what we currently regard as ‘waste’, in order to grow nutrient dense, delicious produce. We encourage you to join us along this journey and visit this page for regular updates.

This week we are pleased to launch our third and final part of our content series in collaboration with the team at the Future Food System. We talk to renowned sustainability advocate, Joost Bakker who opens-up about his zero-waste approach to life and why he built a fully sustainable pop up house in Melbourne’s CBD with his friends Matt Stone and Jo Barrett.

Introducing Joost

Joost is one of the leading sustainability advocates in Australia, with worldwide recognition as a pioneer in designing sustainable restaurants and architecture. Often described as an eco-warrior, Joost’s work is primarily about recreating habitat, self-sufficiency and sustainability.

Why Joost loves our PerfectFresh Pro drawers

“The great thing about the Miele fridge is that it keeps food so much fresher.” Nothing goes to waste at the Future Food System house as the roof grown produce is stored in our integrated fridge-freezer featuring our PerfectFresh Pro crispers. As these drawers create the ideal humidity and temperature, taste and nutrition are preserved, and the shelf-life of the food is maximized. Incredibly, this technology means that produce stays fresher for up to five times longer!

Weekly highlights from the Future Food System house

This week saw many special moments at the Future Food House, with Adam James’ full dining experience and menu shared, it’s difficult to contain the excitement around his incredible dishes he created for special guests. Matt and Jo also shared a new twist for May with a tofu dish and breakfast rice congee, which scored many ticks of approval. Some incredible dishes were created using a new key ingredient: buckwheat. And to top it all off, Matt had a guest appearance on the Deep in the Weeds podcast by Anthony Huckstep.

Introducing Jo

Jo grew up in Melbourne and can’t remember a time when she didn’t love cooking. She strives to minimise waste, employing creative methods to get the most from every ingredient. Industry critics and peers have recognised Jo’s commitment with a string of hospitality awards.

Why Jo loves cooking with Miele’s combi steam oven

“I love the versatility the Miele combi steam oven provides us.” A true all-rounder, Miele combi steam ovens can be used as a conventional oven, steam oven, or a combination of the two. Combining dry and moist heat allows her to achieve perfect baking results, which is especially useful in helping her garden bread to rise whilst also forming a beautiful crust. There are many other useful applications with our combi steam ovens, from built-in automatic programmes that guarantee culinary success, through to the exclusive Mix&Match feature, an app assisted function that delivers a healthy meal in under 30 mins, perfect for when unexpected guests pop into the Future Food System house.

For a wholesome bread alternative using a combination of polenta and fresh honey, we suggest giving this cornbread a go!

Introducing Matt

Hailing from bountiful Margaret River, in Western Australia, Matt Stone has a profound respect for the land. His strong convictions and inquisitive nature have led him to become one of Australia’s leading sustainable chefs. With a philosophy of using local, organic ingredients to produce nutritious dishes with zero waste.

Why Matt loves cooking with induction

“Miele’s induction cooktop is the most phenomenal thing to cook on.” In addition to the effortless cooking experience, what Matt enjoys most about using our full surface induction cooktop is the built-in sustainable features. With induction cooking, heat is only generated at the base of the pan and all surrounding areas remain cool to the touch. This makes it exceptionally safe but also efficient, as this targeted approach prevents excessive energy use. The full surface cooktop also comes in handy when service is in full swing at the Future Food System restaurant, as Matt can position up to 6 pots on the cooktop at any one time.

For a warming, savoury dish using our induction cooktop our sweet potato fritters with yoghurt and maple syrup always go down a treat!

A message from Yves Dalcourt, Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand.
“Enabling consumers to create a sustainable lifestyle through reducing, re-using, repairing and recycling is one of our key strategic brand pillars, so we are very excited that Joost has chosen to partner with Miele for this initiative and use our appliances across this project.”

Miele’s ecological responsibility

The responsibility for our environment has been a tradition at Miele for over 120 years. We want to protect our natural environment as it is the foundation for our existence, so that we and generations to come can have a good future. True to our motto “Immer besser” (forever better), we develop domestic appliances for customers which reduce the burden on the environment and on natural resources. This begins with the selection of materials, continues with efficient production, and ends after a long appliance life with environmentally responsible recycling.
