It is no secret among foodies, chefs and culinary gastronomics that we eat with the eyes first. (see my previous posts: Eating First with the Eyes (Oct. 27, 2013) and Eating with the Eyes and “Colour Conditioning” (Mar. 9, 2015) There is a reason that edifices offering higher education refer to their food related programs as “Culinary Arts“.
There is art everywhere one looks: the common pumpkin has of late, been transformed into incredible caricatures; watermelons have long been fashioned into ships, baskets and the like; even the lowly banana takes its place among the carving arts.
Please enjoy the slide show of the artistic endeavours I found, glorifying food in sculpture. I confess that a few are so intricate and complex, I find myself a tad suspicious that they are not just the product of a master manipulator with Adobe Photoshop (i.e. see the strawberry), but then, I am a born sceptic. I never believed the folk legend about someone inscribing the entire Bible on a grain of rice.
