One of life’s great pleasures is playing with your food. Most people stop when they’re about, well, eight years old. But as an adult, it really is a lot of fun. Why, just this evening I turned my steak into a smiley face, with peas for eyes, a half potato as a nose, and a smear of taleggio as a smile. It was quite a sight, and tasted even better
Feature Shoot this week features Erwan Frotin, a French photographer who sculpts quirky yet beautiful images from, amongst other things, foodstuffs as diverse as eel, lemons, bread, mushroom and apricot. When viewing Frotin’s work I wonder whether his mum encouraged his dinnertime creations, or whether it’s a Freudian return-to-childhood moment gone awry. Either way, I love it.
