In an era where snap-and-post food shots are served as fast as a burger and fries, Gestalten’s Visual Feast is like a three-Michelin-starred restaurant: Masterful, and in a league of its own.The 240-page tome boasts not simply any curation of gastronomic imagery, but one that is produced by some of the world’s leading gourmands, stylists and photographers with a thirst to present food in inventive ways. From cake sculptures and an opulent, gold spraypainted lobster centrepiece, to graphic cocktails and a tidal wave of caviar, these edible eccentricities are sure to satiate all sorts of artistic appetites.
