Food culture continues to grow in popularity as never before with the rise of influential new chefs and restaurateurs, the birth of first-class boutique magazines and an ever growing list of cooking shows. This expanded awareness has fueled a renaissance in the way we see or interact with food or its image through the visionary achievements of select artists and designers. The familiar
parental admonishment, "Don't play with your food!¿ has
not stopped the designers featured in this new expose of food inspired arts. From sofas which mimic the appearance of chocolate bars and sidewalk portraits
created from toast slices to flatware in the shape of vegetables and chocolate pencils you can shave - the scale and variety of projects is impressive. Features art, graphic design & typography, jewelry & furniture design, kitchenware, photography and, oh yeah, food!
