Aside from satisfying hunger, food inspires.
Newfound ingredients inspire culinary innovation. Cooking (and eating) inspires countless bloggers and professional food writers to share their experiences. Cooking in itself is an act of sharing. Food also inspires emotion. Each time it is prepared, a family recipe invokes emotions and perhaps memories of one’s past, upbringing or missed loved ones.
Its inspirational quality must be the reason why food is often depicted in art. Whether crafty folk art or infamous pop art, food had been printed, painted, stamped, molded, and created in so many ways.
Here’s a look at some of those creative little crafts, and the dishes one could only imagine they would taste like.
