FOOD: INSPIRING CREATIVITY.

Cooking is the art of preparing food for consumption. It consists of making ordinary ingredients into an extraordinary dish as the mix of tastes, aromas, textures, and temperature require skill, technique and creativity. But that's really only half the equation, lately we've realised that food inspires artists and photographers as it can be turned into minimalist art, used as patterns or even fashion.

Below are some examples of the current inspirations from that world:

Deconstructed food

Chefs and photographers are inspired by deconstructed food that consist on serving the basic components of an "original" dish separately on one plate.

3D Food Printing

Chloé Rutzerveld, Industrial design student,  3D printed a healthy biscuit matrix, which contains plants. The biscuit itself was made from dried fruits, vegetables and a gelatinous paste that functions as a soil for seeds and yeast. After waiting for about five days, the plants have sufficiently grown and the product can be eaten.
