We’re constantly looking to nature for inspiration in so many ways.
It’s no wonder that some artist were inspired by the bright, rich colors of fruits and that make up the basis for their colorful sculptures and photos. In this article you can enjoy such a beautiful art with food.
Some culinary trend watchers say the current appetite for whimsical produce art may have started with Saxton Freymann’s work in the 1997 book, “Play with Your Food.” His brussels sprouts pigs, broccoli poodles and bok choy fish have been featured on greeting cards, calendars and in several subsequent books.
Here are the examples
