Food in Art

please enjoy my highly important research findings of Food in Art.  one thing i realised while putting this together is that many artists are completely OBSESSED with donuts. maybe the oozing of the paint reminds them of the oozing of the inside of jam filled donut, but there it is. all images courtesy of Artsy.

Fat & Furious Burger

here’s a bit of fun for you on this fine Saturday. maybe you went out last night, had a few drinks, or smashed two bottles of great wine over dinner (yes that’s what we did). in which case it’s highly possible you’re in the mood for a big juicy burger…

1-2 Simple Cooking

when we were in NYC we found it pretty easy to eat out all the time because there was so much variety, and you could eat quite cheaply on the go if you needed to (which was amazing for lazy people like us). but it made me think about when…

The Table

you will no doubt remember my old friend Jessica from various posts on the blog, as well as her and husband Luke’s wonderful restaurant Nook in Stellenbosch. after some busy & hectic years they sold Nook and moved to the country for a while, but it wasn’t long before ideas…

Isabelle Bertolini

now, i know that people love to make fun of the many, many food photos you see on Instagram these days – but i for one love them. they are usually the number 1 photo that i tend to favourite, especially when the food in question involves the simple and…

Gather Journal

i’ll be the first to admit that i don’t buy traditional food magazines, and i don’t even really browse food blogs (unless i’m hungry), but what i AM interested in is beautiful photography, art direction and design – and Gather Journal has these in spades. Michele Outland and Fiorella Valdesolo have pulled together…

i immediately clicked through to Mimi Thorisson’s blog Manger after Joanna posted about her garden cake. Mimi lives in  the Médoc region of France with her family and 14 (!) dogs including a german pointer called Gertrude who i would probably steal if we ever met (german short haired pointers are my…

Dark Temptress

the type of food that’s been catching my eye lately is dark, dark, dark. beautiful dark photography and even beautifully dark food. i would love nothing more than to sit in a dimly lit room with a massive table piled with plates of these foods in front of me, like some…

The Forest Feast

i think about food all the time. and i don’t mean just eating it (of course) but always trying to answer the same questions – what am i going to eat for dinner? how can i NOT spend a crapload of cash on food? how can i not waste my…
