Edible ingredients are transformed into whimsical happy faces by the expert hand of chef Rudi Sodamin. In this inventive volume, he uses both everyday and luxury foods grapes, apples, chile peppers, salmon roe, caviar, and black truffles, among many other items to craft more than 150 funny faces that are sure to inspire both laughter and wonder. Like a modern Arcimboldo, Sodamin has carefully assembled these images using nothing but food items. Each face is a unique piece of art: vibrant in colour, rich in texture, and constructed in an incredibly imaginative way. This book has a universal appeal that crosses all ages, languages, cultures and food groups. Food Faces makes a great gift for anyone who needs a little lift.
