 Diane Bisson, a Université de Montréal industrial design professor, teamed up with chefs and a dietitian to create recipes for edible plates and containers in various shapes, all made without preservatives, artificial colours or sugar.

She focused on using vegetables and vegetable flours, such as water chestnut flour, as well as fruit, beans and bean flours. A dish that paired grilled, caramelized fennel with white beans was the inspiration for one plate.Colours of the containers spanned the spectrum from red to yellow, orange, green, brown and black. She used quinoa and poppyseed flour to make one black container. (via thestar.com)
