Calm technology. We need technological help to grow tempeh in places where the climate is not suitable for its growth. The idea of our fermenter is to mimic the Indonesian climate to produce plant-based protein food using local beans, to cooperate with nature and help it to help us. But the technology for our device doesn't need to be intrusive, connected to the internet, track our habits or consume more energy than it actually needs. It just needs to produce heat according to what the growth of the mycelium requires. Only a few components are needed. A few components that we can understand, repair and improve if necessary. A few components that reconcile open-source technology with citizens and our food production. We like to call it calm technology.

We've published a new tempeh recipe on our website: Tempeh Poke Bowl, a fresh meal ready in a flash!

Result of the tempeh fermentation test in the latest prototype: 30 hours later the mycelium is absolutely gorgeous!

Fermenter in progress: cabinet and tempeh making. We are testing the new shape and volume of the fermenter by making tempeh with it, in order to get the best parameters for the fermentation to be always successful. We are very excited about how it is going so far!

Peanut Tempeh Recipe! ⚡

This year we want to share with you the recipes we prepare around the tempehs we make. Our aim is to experiment more with the varieties of grains we use to make tempeh and the ways of cooking it.

Here is our first proposal: a winter salad with a kick-ass peanut tempeh, sweet potato, black beans, flat beans, kale, ginger, turmeric, soy sauce, poppy seeds and fenugreek sprouts.

Hello friends,

It's been almost a year since we decided to fully dedicate ourselves to the Domingo Club and our mission to promote plant-based food, the practice of , interest in , and making tools for anyone to start fermenting their food at home, teaming up with and .

We are very enthusiastic about this first year. We participated in an acceleration programme to structure our ideas and push us to go further, won prizes and challenges with our designs, organised events around to make people want to taste it (and adopt it!), started selling the Domingo necklace to offer you a poetic entry into the wonderful world of fermentation and mushrooms. We presented our project and its values at several events and conferences. Our fermentation practice has become much more solid and constant.

Happy new year,
Maudi and Toni

We are very excited to present you a project we have been working on for over a year: a poetic invitation to start growing fungi and fermenting your own plant-based protein (aka ) with the heat of your body.

One of our papers was published in the book Distributed Design: Welcome to the Domingo Club. We talk about our Domingo project, our vision and our values. Have a good read, and tell us what you think.

Good news! We won the Distributed Design Award 2021!

Our project was first selected, among the 12 finalists, in the *Adaptable and open-design* category and now, after a few weeks of suspense, we have just learned that we won the award for excellence! Woop woop!

We'll receive 2000€ to finance the development of the Domingo Club and our incubator. Long live the Domingo Club!

For those who are or will be in London this month: you will be able to see the Domingo Club as part of the "Cathedral of Creativity" taking place in the Somerset House galleries for the "Design in Age of Crisis" exhibition — presented as part of the London Design Biennale.
Please take pictures if you go :)

Hi everyone!

☼ Here's the new Mastodon account of the Domingo Club ☼

We make fermented , tools and explore collaboration with natural processes to promote , , and in our global food system.

Here we want to explain a little more deeply and naturally the things we do, that happen to us, that we create on a daily basis. To take you with us.

Our initiative is super fresh, a lot of things are still to be defined, we take events as they come. We are based in Barcelona, Spain. We speak English, Spanish and French. This account will be mainly, but not only, managed by @focus404.

Thanks to Sunbeam.city for hosting us, and thanks to @liaizon for the invitation :-)
