In class tomorrow we are going to try to create food art. For those who don’t understand what food art is, it is the art of putting food into obscure and visually pleasing forms. the cool thing I find about food art is the fact that you can take some ordinary, bland food and turn it into a masterpiece. Food art has become so serious that people are now dedicating their lives to it.
Although our class isn’t full of professional food artists, we do have some students like Aster who have taken beautiful shots of food art and can hopefully show us a thing or two on how it’s done. Each of us are supposed to bring in one food item that is different from everyone else’s so we can hopefully have as many different options to choose from as possible.
After searching the web for some ideas of food art I stumbled across many of them being of apples. I can see why, they come in different colors, they are easy to cut into different shapes, and they also make a healthy food look delicious. Below is a picture of an apple turned into a a beautiful butterfly.
This picture obviously took some practice and precision to accomplish. I don’t think we will create something as extravagant as this but we can try!
I also found this video on how to create a bird with an apple
We could follow these steps and hopefully create something close to this.
Another food item that came up a lot while I was searching for food art was sushi. Sushi is an art form in itself but once people get creative with it, the possibilities are endless. Below is a picture i found of a sushi roll turned into a panda!
All in all, I think tomorrow will be fun and I think that one of us will make something very cool!
