in the city :: food edition

I like to take pictures of my food. I’m not sure where this comes from. Maybe from my obsession with miniature fake food? Anyways, here is a glimpse of our meals the past few weeks. I have been on a mission to eat cleaner by including more fruit and veg and really, when it’s this pretty, why wouldn’t you eat more of that? I have also … {are you ready?} … been running * gasp *. I know. I am not a runner nor am I an early morning kind of person, but I just finished week 3 in the C25K program and nobody is more shocked than myself. Seriously.

own label by sainsbury

Usually, people snub their noses at no name or own label brands (Rob’s mom used to buy no name cereal and pour it into brand name boxes), but I am loving this collection of vintage Sainsbury‘s packaging. The new book, Sainsburys Design Studio, celebrates the shift when Peter Dixon joined their design studio and revotuionized their own line: simple, stripped down, creative, and completely different from what they had done before. Could you imagine if they brought these designs back? Pretty!

gcuk :: sneak peeks :: petitplat

I first discovered PetitPlat through my obsession with miniatures and especially with my love of fake food, so when I received her application to Got Craft? UK, I almost fainted. Well, maybe not quite, but there was a lot of hand waving, smiles and maybe a few screams of joy! The amount of effort and detail that Stéphanie puts into each clay sculpture is simply amazing especially when you realize that most of her work is smaller than a penny!

Meet Stéphanie and shop for miniature versions of your favourite food at Got Craft? London on Sunday, November 27th, 2011 from 11am-5pm at the Tooting Tram and Social!

In her work “From Scratch“, artist Judith G. Klausner turns everyday food items into amazing works of art. Did you guess that those cameos above are made of oreo cookies?

She says that, “Like the production of food, a variety of handicrafts were a mundane requirement of the female gender. Sewing, embroidery, and knitting have enjoyed resurgences, sometimes even within the realm of fine art… My latest series (now in progress) uses Victorian handicraft processes to transform modern packaged foods, exploring how the intertwined histories of gender and craft have shaped one another and our everyday lives.”
