Can food be art? Can art be food? The story of art and the story of food are in fact intertwined. Both became sophisticated at the same time. In the Middle Ages feasting was rich, riotous and crude. Pies shaped like swans disgorged dozens of smaller birds. People ate with their fingers. Art too was simple and when painters showed food, there was little subtlety. In the Renaissance, art became more self-conscious – and so did eating. In 16th-century, Italian feasts were stylish and polite. Plates were used and cutlery was coming into fashion. Artists portrayed the new feasting in pictures such as Veronese's Wedding Feast at Cana. They showed country picnics and even peasant meals. But could art reinvent food itself? Leonardo da Vinci thought so. His notebooks contain thoughts on food as well as foodie shopping lists and recipes. He believed inventive cooking could replace the flavors of meat – for he was a vegetarian. Leonardo was the first conceptual artist. In the same tradition, Rirkrit Tiravanija serves up food as art. Yet it is chefs who are best at making food feel like a creative game. Cooking and conceptual art go together like sprouts and anchovies. Everyone has to eat. All cooking that aims higher than a boiled egg is an attempt to make an art of a necessity. In this sense it is surely the first art that human beings ever attempted. And it's still the most universal. Source: The Guardian

Así sin más y con todo 😋😋😋 ensalada de alubias variadas con pimiento rojo & huevo duro & queso de cabra & cebolla & tomate de pera y mi aliño favorito " os lo he dejado en mi Stories 🎬 " ayer vi a Marta @cometeunapera y dije esa me la hago yo mañana ñam ñam !! Nena que seguida vamos en todo 😂😂😂😂 besicos y buen provecho para los tardíos como yo en comer. 🚩 Tan solo tenéis que tener la precaución de tener las alubias en remojo y cocer , yo las hice anoche y así hoy fresquitas.
🚩 el huevo duro, igual lo hacéis y una vez atemperado al frigo.
🚩 al aliño,podéis echarle las especias que más os gusten.
🚩 y un chorrito de limón le va ideal.
Enjoy your weekend! Relax the best way you know how...I will not be fishing. We are officially closed today and will be back on the road Tuesday. This all edible creation has Tackle box cake and fish made of rice crispies. There was a lot of studying in fish anatomy, wasn't too difficult as my life has been fishy since childhood.

Here’s another photo from the latest “berry” shoot we did for the great designers at Giant Eagle. This is the second photo I’ve posted from that job and I’ve yet to share my favorite! Special thanks to @mwalkerdesign @laurenboeh @combustion_junkie and like I always say... “It’s all in the art direction”!
