Food Art ; Fine art or Cultural Dessert?

George Bernard Shaw once said ”There is no sincerer love than the love for food”. In today’s blog we are going to explore just how much these 4 artist love food and their art.

Some people may regard food art as insane, I am not one of them I think food art is another level of creativity, as food itself is a form of art.

From foodscapes to biscuit buildings, there are times it is mouthwatering and other times stomach turning. Here are my personal pick for the top food artists from around the globe.

  1. I love the last two artists you picked out. I’m just wondering if this is something I can do at home – but not too wastefully. Nicola http://islingtonfacesblog.com
