Food Art About the News

A few weeks ago we asked readers to create and send in photos of food art about the news (anything even tangentially "about" a current or past event, made mostly of food), for a gallery presented by the Samsung Galaxy S® 4, and here are the results. Thank you. It is truly like reading a newspaper.

"The Lonely Broccoli Mammoth"
By: Monica McLaughlin

 

"My beer foam naturally took the form of a red panda face, and the Chattanooga Zoo got a new red panda this week! (Too much of a stretch?)[Ed. — Nope! Perfect.]
By: Melissa

 

"The Glass Half-Full/Half-Empty, Emptying Itself"
By: Natalie Eve Garrett

 

"This particular piece of food art is of a cat sneaking into a prison with a cell phone, which is based on this story in the Moscow Times. The body is made from an italian eggplant, the head is red potato, the ears are rhubarb, and its eyes were made from the stem of the eggplant. Its legs are made from baby carrots. The cellphone and its whiskers are made from snap peas. Its tail is made from a jalapeño. My dish rack is slotted so I thought it worked the best as a prison."
By: Mike Dang

 

"I didn't carve any radishes but here is the Easter egg I made of Alistair Darling (his eyebrows are a different color from his hair!). I'm not sure what the text is about, I think there was a meme of rewriting the text on some Tory election add billboard or something? Who knows. It's the best I could do!"
By: Jon Custer

 

"Inbox Almost Zero"
By: Anonymous

 

"Game of Thrones 'Red Wedding' in Spicy Arrabbiata Sauce" [Ed. — Spoiler behind link.]
By: Jim Behrle

 

"This just happened at my friend's birthday party with some Skittles, it's not quite food art, but the one in the corner really looks like a tomato!" [Ed. — YES!]
By: Sachar Mathias

 

"whatchagonnado"

"It's really bad but relates to the recent news that sea turtle populations are making a comeback. It doesn't really look like a turtle but maybe if you squint your eyes...?"

LOL BROCCOLI MAMMOTH. Good show, all!

iceberg

Broccoli Mammoth is the clear winner (of my heart), but well done everyone!

I thought the pineapple was a good choice for turtle shell.

RK Fire

@iceberg The Broccoli Mammoth is adorable. And it's good for you!

monicamcl

@iceberg Heh, thanks guys. I made a clone, too, but he fell apart when I was trying to photograph them and I couldn't get him back together again.

leylusha

@monicamcl awwww (foreboding)

stuffisthings

HOW DID I JUST NOTICE THE ICE CUBES?

Neve Garrett

@monicamcl BROCCOLI MAMMOTH I <3 YOU!

monicamcl

@Natalie Eve NATALIE! I love your wispy drink! (What do you use for the white?)

Neve Garrett

@monicamcl Yogurt (ghosts). And, of course, Sriracha! I like to think that there's Sriracha-blood in your broccoli-mammoth. Lonely and cold, but with ATTITUDE.

monicamcl

@Natalie Eve Duh, I forgot about yogurt. Was thinking mayo (blegh). And I like that - he may be chilly on the outside, but inside he's all Sriracha blood and sharp toothpick tips. CLONE AT RISK

frigwiggin

the jalapeño tail

carolinaclay

Wow! Food art is amazing!!@y

fondue with cheddar

THESE ARE FANTASTIC and I wish I'd remembered to make one!

And beer foam red panda totally counts!

cosmia

I am surprised that nothing was in the shape of Brazilian protestors, to be honest. The Red Wedding one warmed my heart for some reason.

stuffisthings

@cosmia Yeah unfortunately I didn't have 250,000 baby carrots in the fridge.

Gulfie

Mike Dang!

SarcasticFringehead

@Gulf of Finland I have this thought at least once a day.

iceberg

@Gulf of Finland I know! <3

rosaline

@Gulf of Finland I love the thoroughness of his explanation!

martinipie

@SarcasticFringehead Me too!

honey cowl

@Gulf of Finland MIKE DANG!!!

@Edith Zimmerman Her?

I knew that egg would come in handy some day.

anachronistique

"I think I just ruined this cutting board"? Maybe.

mannequinhands

@anachronistique No problem. It was from IKEA. :D

HereKitty

That totally looks like a turtle. Kudos!

jilt

@HereKitty Agreed, totally adorable turtle. Is it wishful thinking on my part, or is that an even more adorable baby muffin turtle in the background?

George Templeton Strong

Love all of these. There are bakeries that make cakes that look like things (like yule logs for Christmas, those are pretty common, and turkeys for Thanksgiving.) I'm partial to cookbooks that look like things. Here's an example (I'm not the seller, and I don't have any connection to etsy):

Beer panda foam. If this happened to me, I would have shown all my friends asking if it meant good luck.

laurel

Inbox Almost Zero is amazing.

Valley Girl

So good! I've been kicking myself for not getting an entry in by the deadline. Jim Behrle had my idea anyway, except mine was going to be an edible representation of all the videos of people reacting to the Red Wedding.
