Is it not foodie heaven when we find better ways to make or grow tastier food? Is it not delightful to discover new ways to prepare or store your favorite drink? And the best part is being able to share it with friends and family.

This week’s Grommet Gallery of hacks features food kits and kitchen tools that will give new life to your kitchen and palate. From growing mushrooms to storing produce naturally, here are six hacks that will let you eat and drink better!

Back to the Roots ($40.95, Set of 2 Kits) -- If you’ve always wanted a mushroom garden, behold the magic of an indoor pearl oyster mushroom growing kit whose soil is made from 100% recycled coffee grounds. Pearl oysters have a woody flavor and meaty texture, making them great for all kinds of dishes.

Molecule-R: Cuisine R-Evolution Kit ($58.95) -- Molecular gastronomy is a modern style of cuisine that encourages chefs to experiment with a wide variety of ingredients through a scientific approach to cooking. This kit gives you the tools and guidance for preparing visually stunning food right at home.



SushiQuik ($34.95) -- The chefs make it so easy to eat, but most of us aren’t quite sure how sushi all comes together. Hack your way to great sushi with the right tools. This set comes with a roller, training frame, rice paddle, roll cutter, and roller end-caps so you’re not left guessing on how much rice to spread and so on.

Bee’s Wrap ($18, Set of 3 sizes) -- Feel uneasy wrapping your food in something so environmentally un-friendly as plastic? These eco-friendly food wraps are made from organic cotton muslin, beeswax, jojoba oil, and tree resin, plus they’re reusable and recyclable. Just use the warmth of your hands to mold the wraps over food.

The Mason Shaker ($29) -- Combined with a few pieces of high quality stainless steel pieces, the iconic Mason jar is hacked into a cocktail shaker. It’s also a great conversation piece in the kitchen.


Savino ($49.95) -- This carafe is designed to serve and preserve a bottle of wine, keeping it fresh for up to a week. Not only does it store easily the refrigerator, it is dishwasher safe for when you do finish the wine.
