A Feast for the Eyes : Edible Art from Apple to Zucchini
'rich and appetising' - The Spectator
A fun alphabetical compendium of food as art
This handsome book proves once and for all, if it ever were in doubt, that food is art. This survey of comestible confections and culinary marvels from around the world that is at once beautiful and usually edible.
Illustrations are a careful selection of mainly contemporary materials, from a witty recreation of Arcimboldo’s Vertumnus to crop art in the rice fields of Japan, corn palaces in South Dakota, and tea, chocolate, and coffee in strange manipulations, all brought together for the first time to give a delightful and beautifully produced overview of edible art.
