Play with your food

What better time than pumpkin-carving season for food art? :)
by Saxton Freymann, from Play With Your Food
I'd love an Anna the Red bento box!
Carl Warner's foodscapes
Kevin Van Aelst
And pumpkins of course!

P.S. Many apologies to anyone I've been trying to follow (or trying to follow me) - I've had major problems with Blogger for ages! I have a new appointment with the computer doctor & hope everything works OK soon.

justine said...

Oh my goodness. The cauliflower sheep are almost too cute to eat! What are their heads made of?! This is so much fun--definitely a good idea for a mom with kids who don't like to eat their vegetables!

Brandi said...

The sheep are cute (and probably a great way to get kids to eat cauliflower) but the Calvin and Hobbes food piece is seriously impressive! I'd have such a hard time eating that one.

I am amazed how how the talent inside people comes out. These iamges are amazing. That flower looks real and as far as the pumpkin (or apple) carving, I am hopeless.

Hi Jude, thanks for the comment!
Those food pics are from Raku. It's seriously amazing food, and Annie brings me there every time I visit!

These are amazing Jude! If only I'd known about those little cauliflower critters when my kids were younger! Great post.

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

So cute! Love those sheep.

Kristin Hjellegjerde said...

That is adorable! Maybe that is what I have to do to make my little once eat more. Sheep cauliflower for dinner! Yes:)

Kristin said...

If only I had that kind of creativity inside me...WOW!

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Now those are awesome!

I'm bummed now that I won't be carving a pumpkin this year. Large carving pumpkins are not as readily available as they are in the states, and when they do appear on the produce shelves it's like a few days just before Halloween! Blah!

Isabel said...

i love food art, its so cool!

Amy@OldSweetSong said...

Very cool collection! I heart those "Where the Wild Things Are" pumpkins. Wish I could pull something like that off.

Amber Blue Bird said...

whoa that apple art piece is incredible...I wish I had the patience to do this..and the skill :)

Jude said...

Thank you for your lovely comments!

@Nicole - I think those sheeps heads are olives (and Helmand is amazing! :)
@Nikki - thanks so much for the Raku suggestion!

Annie said...

haha awwww these pics are so cool and fun! A great way to get kids excited about fruits & veggies! :)
YES, you must go to Raku next time you're in DC! Definitely one of my favs and now, one of Nikki's too!
p.s. I just can't wait to try tea in the UK.. I think I might get a little snobby about it too once I try, but it sounds like I'll have good reason :)

Rosie said...

This is soooo cute! I LOVE it!!! No way I could do this myself, though...
