VAN­ITY FARE

Harper's Bazaar (Singapore) - - THE CULTURE -

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.
