Dude makes symmetrical breakfasts for himself and his boyfriend for an entire year

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But looking at the salivating photos from Michael Zee’s series, ‘Symmetry Breakfast’, it’s the most beautiful meal of the day too!

One morning sometime last year, Michael Zee served breakfast to his boyfriend Mark van Beek and noticed how perfectly symmetrical their dishes were. He took a photo, posted it on social media, and soon got everyone asking for more. Since then, Zee has been posting photos of their mirror-like breakfasts together.

According to Zee, he often wakes up early to prepare breakfast – sometimes even starting the night before. Other times, they eat out and document the diverse meals served in different countries like Japan, Amsterdam, and France. Some of the food they’ve enjoyed include green harissa egg boats, smoothie pancakes, and Turkish-inspired breakfast pizza.

‘People wonder if I’m crazy or obsessive’, Zee told The Guardian, ‘but it is a declaration of love, really. I’m dedicated – both to breakfast and to Mark’.
