Whereas most people would see lip-smacking candy, New York-based Jessica Siskin sees art and a business opportunity!

Not knowing how to make average desserts like cake, she decided to make an edible Rice Krispie treat sculpture, specifically a surfboard […]

Photographer Isabella Vacchi gives us an idea of what different meal settings look like when color variety is absent. Entitled ‘MONOCHROME’, the series organizes food and dining ware according to just four color palettes: black, white, grey, and brown. While the food spreads may be neat and organized, it’s not very appetizing to the eyes. […]
‘Bottled Food’ is an eye-opening series by mixed-media artist Tom Davie, wherein he takes processed foods usually found in cans or boxes, and repackages them into glass bottles. Mac & cheese may be heaven when we see it in its usual box, but put it in a transparent container and it’s just sickening. The same […]
After you see this selection of goodies from Los Angeles-based Christine McConell, you’ll have forgotten your sugar cravings from sheer terror and fright!

You know what they say, ‘Better start those sushi chefs young!’ Or so I think that’s how it goes.

In Yokohama, Japan, the Zou-No-Hana Café serves a one-of-a-kind desert: the ‘zou no hana’, which translates to, ‘elephant nose ice cream’.

Did you just wake up to a massive hangover? Well then, instead of taking an aspirin, why don’t you try one of these remedies: sheep lungs and owl eggs, deep fried canary, fish scrape, or fertilized duck egg embryo. One of these might do the trick. Then again, they might also traumatize you for life (yes I’m talking about you, Balut.)
