These Food Art Instagrams Are Blowing My Mind

As someone who can mess up a sandwich, I am delighted by these edible artworks.

Quarantine life has many of us developing new homebound skill sets. The crafty folks are knitting and perling away, puzzle enthusiasts are covering every flat surface in their home with new puzzles, and amateur chefs are cooking up a storm. As a solidly B minus chef myself, I’ve been learning new cooking skills thanks to the internet and my social distancing steady, the Bon Appétit YouTube Channel.

So far, I’ve learned how to poach an egg, cook fish en papillote, and am in the process of mastering my new air fryer. And while my culinary creations have been more hits than misses (and believe me, there have been some MISSES y’all), they usually turn out pretty tasty.

But recently, I’ve fallen down an Instagram wormhole of food art. If you’re not familiar with the hashtag #FoodArt, then you have been missing out. Chefs and bakers from all over the world are creating stunning edible artworks in a variety of tasty mediums. In the midst of, let’s face it, higher than normal anxiety and depression, there is something oddly soothing about these culinary creations. It’s like ASMR for your eyeballs.

So if you’re looking for a momentary distraction or some family-friendly internet content, you’ll really dig the following food art profiles.

Для @natalieokoneshnikova_ задание 3 «руки в кадре» #марафон_natalieok3_камера ⠀ Это тот рецепт Наташи @natalieokoneshnikova_ , по которому я готовлю не первый раз, а поскольку эти воздушные творожные пончики любят абсолютно все, почему бы не приготовить их снова))) ⠀ Надо сказать, что идею с телефоном я использую не первый раз. В актуальном есть фото и бэки на эту тему. И пончики эти не раз у меня и летали, и в молоко ныряли, в общем что-то новенькое с этими колобочками захотелось.
