Getting more mileage out of your kitchen this past month-plus? Same. A lot feels up in the air right now, but one thing’s for certain: we’re gonna be hungry. Might as well have some fun while we sate our appetites. Cooking up a storm isn’t much of a stand-in for social interaction, but it still provides ample opportunity for entertainment. (Besides, no one’s coming over, so the dishes can wait.) And at the very pinnacle of “playing with your food” is ... food art!
We’re using that term to describe art about food, art made from food, and any kind of food-inspired artistic treat in between. For this new installment in our ongoing guide to Armchair Art Appreciation (our team’s tips for supporting and celebrating the arts without setting foot outside), we’ve stirred up a scrummy list of food art—creativity and tummy rumbling baked riiiiiight in. Whether you’re inclined to adorn your walls with a looming, luscious likeness of butter or you’re finally gonna try your hand at one of those Insta-friendly focaccia landscapes, we got the goods.
Can’t talk about all this without acknowledging that food security is a privilege—especially now, as COVID-19 has taken a toll on global food availability, closed schools, and left over 20 million people unemployed in the US alone.
