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 threeMichelin-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.
This 25-year-old started a blog three years ago to document his adventures with food and share recipes.

He captures dishes in soft light and cinematic dark tones, injecting depth and sensual appeal to even the most basic of burgers; while his website is a gold mine of elevated Asian recipes, like cold somen with charcoal grilled beef cubes in ice kombu broth and green sage tea.
