There was a time when people would use food simply for pleasure, but during the past 2 decades food has evolved into a form of art, where vibrant colors, geometric shapes and fluid forms work together to create dishes that most people would be too ashamed to touch. I’ve been following Food Art Chefs on Instagram for quite some time now and I wanted to share the amazing pictures that they post of some of the most creative meals that you will ever see. Probably you’ve already seen your share of impressive dishes, since we have so many cooking shows on TV, but in this case the food is being treated as paints on a canvas of something as simple as a plate.
1. Blue Lobster & Espelette Pepper by Gregoire Berger
I don’t know if I want to eat it, or just keep watching it for hours.
2. Orange Ginger Glazed Scallops, Sriracha Carrot Purée, Edamame Purée, Lo Mein, Poached Egg Yolk by Rich Knott
Okay, I definitely want to eat that.
3. Beef Tenderloin, Poached Quail Eggs, Red Wine Beet Reduction, Roasted Sweet Potato Purée by Rich Knott
As a vegetarian, I feel really tempted right now, and if that’s not a compliment, then I don’t know what is.
4. Corn Soup by Mustafa Yankavi
That’s art people!
5. Saffron panna cotta, apricot puree, pistachio, praline, berries, meringues, grapes, edible flowers by Ma Pasion
Such a beauty!
6. Agrumes / passion / chocolate by Vincent Angebault
Anyone ready for dessert?
7. Pan Seared Arctic Char, Roasted Carrots, Leeks, Blistered Tomatoes, English Peas by Chefs604Rei
Vegetables never seemed so yummy!
8. Lobsterlicious, lobster by Edy Kriswanto
What I wanted to show with these dishes is that high gastronomy doesn’t need to present completely empty dishes with only two or three tiny elements inside. A dish of high quality can be a little fuller than we’re used to seeing on TV and high-end restaurants.
