To get your taste buds going, these works of art are designed by various chef’s and ordinary people from around the world. Featuring some of the most popular food items like Chocolate, Ice Cream, Chips, Cake and Fruit – some of these works of art are also a bit of tongue and cheek!

You don’t have to be a professional chef to try and make food art yourself! Food art can be created with just about any type of food! These works of art that will make you very hungry should be enough to have you start cooking straight away!

"Meals Interrupted" by Davide Luciano and Claudia Ficca

A series depicting meals that came to a close rather abruptly: “each shot vividly captures the disappointment and sense of abandonment that evidently accompanies a gathering that is suddenly and unexpectedly ended.”

The meals you see above = “Al Dente” (“an Italian lunch ruined by a calculated mob hit”) and “Honeyed” (“picnic ravaged by a swarm of bees”).

“Band Riders” by Hargreaves and Levin

If you’re a famous performer you get to make requests before you arrive at a venue for a concert – you put together a “rider” filled with the different things you want to munch on and drink backstage.

In this series, Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin depict the riders of famous musicians like Beyoncé (“juicy baked chicken, garlic, sea salt, black pepper”) and Marilyn Manson (“gummi bears”).
