Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva: A Feast for the Eyes: Food as Fine Art

London’s swanky Pied à Terre restaurant is notable for many reasons - namely the food, which has been the toast-of-the-town for twenty years, with a variety of gourmet dishes that are works of art (and taste) themselves. But some of the most unique culinary creations aren’t relegated only to the table: glance up at the walls, and you’ll see a month’s worth of fish dinners arranged into artful sculptures and installations adorning the dining room, and cleverly ensconced elsewhere throughout the venue. The staircase is lined with scallop corals, quail carcases embellish the walls of the upstairs bar, and those captivating white orbs arrayed on the skylight just happen to be sheep testicles.
