Junk Food Plated To Look Like Gourmet Meals

corn-dog-spogebob-zoodles

Although most junk food doesn’t need anything more than garish packaging and a shiny sugar-coating to appeal to our eyes — there are ways to make it seem more sophisticated.

Chef Jacques Lamerde, using master plating skills, takes some of our favorite sugary and salty items, and makes them appear gourmet.

He even applies fancy menu-naming techniques to the plates of Hot Pockets, Pop-Tarts and Munchkins, to help complete the culinary ruse. See more below and over at his Instagram.

Hot Girls Eating Pizza Is How You Make a Successful Instagram Account

girls-pizza

You use the appropriate filter. You only take pictures of your finest meals and sunsets. Still, your Instagram account is not getting the attention that it deserves.

Hot Girls Eating Pizza could teach us a few things. For one, Instagram users love pizza. Secondly, pictures of aesthetically-pleasing girls get “Likes.” Combine the two, and @H0tGirlsEatingPizza is a bona fide hit on the photo app… no matter what filter they use.

See more “cool girls & hot pizza” here.

Preservation, A Photo Series Of Models Covered In Honey

Tao2012

Photographer Blake Little has made quite a name for himself as a celebrity photographer. So, when he asks you to stand there as you’re covered head-to-toe in sticky honey, you do so.

In his photo series, Preservation, Little takes a diverse set of models of all ages, ethnicities and species, and gets pourin’. The result is a beautiful display of the human form and, as Little describes it, looks as if they were “preserved in amber.”

See more of the slightly NSFW and very sticky images below.

50 Shades of Food, A Photo Spoof of Fifty Shades of Grey Featuring Food and Sex Toys

® Bryan Regan

With the film version of Fifty Shades of Grey finally unleashed, the harsh reviews and parodies of the film are plentiful. Which leads us to 50 Shades of Food by photographer Bryan Regan.

The series, juxtaposing submissive humans for food items, includes a donut on a butt plug, a nimple-clamped lemon, and a poor little tied-up honey bear. At the very least, 50 Shades of Food could be a bit hunger-inducing… whether you’re “into that sort of thing” or not.

More can be found below and over at Regan’s site here. Sorta NSFW.

Pizza Is The New Black, A Series of Monochromatic ‘Pizza’ With Unusual Toppings

3

What actually constitutes a pizza? It needs to be round, sometimes square, with a base preferably made of dough. Then it needs to have stuff on it.

With those criteria in mind, Pizza Is The New Black is a series of the most interesting pizza we’ve seen in a while. The monochromatic photos include a pizza representing one color — including the dough and background. The toppings, although mostly inedible, are only meant to blend into its color scheme.

The series is brought to us by design studio Black Pizza, chef Julie Basset and photographer Erwan Fichou. One yellow pizza with extra rubber ducky, please!
