At the moment, I’m delightedly working on a few books that feature gorgeous food and the artful techniques used to create such splendid gastronomical work. While all this culinary talent is inspiring to be around, it’s also distracting at the same time: I come to work excited to read recipes and review photography, and I leave work yearning for things like homemade butter slathered on thick slices of toast and German chocolate cake piled high with coconuts and pecans (see what I mean? your mind just shut down for a moment while your stomach did a little dance, didn’t it.).
So in an effort to distract myself, I started hunting for images of fun food—food that’s meant to be played with as well as tasted. Boy, did I find some AWESOME creations! The folks behind these photographs are genius, I tell you, genius. I now must eat BabyBel cheese only if it has been made into a cute face, and I’m pretty sure the Where’s Waldo egg is the best thing I’ve seen in ages.
