A little change of pace for this episode of Food Art Friday. Although the medium and method of this week’s artist is a bit different than our last few entries, the creativity and pure awesomeness remain. Enjoy.
Play With My Food is a great site and project by artist Jake Johnston. A self-described animal-friendly foodie and mild-mannered toy collector, Jake combines these two passions to create something that we just don’t see very often — a truly original food blog.
As the name implies, Play With My Food does just that, play with food. But rather than simply making train tracks in mashed potatoes or constructing a pea pyramid, Jake gets his extensive toy collection involved. They not only serve as inspiration for Jake’s vegetarian recipes, but occasionally participate in the food photography.
From a vegetarian bacon dish inspired by and starring the Pigs In Space, to a veggie burger brought to us by Radioactive Man, Jake gives us a brief history of the characters involved, then dives into his meatless recipes. Now if you’ll excuse me, He-Man and I need to check on our quiche. Have a good weekend.
