Quite often dishes made by the chefs are often reminiscent of a work of art. It even feels inappropriate to eat them as you don’t want to ruin what chef has arranged and sliced so thoroughly. Slicing the ingredients is one of the first tasks when making any dish. But what if everything would be vice versa? Trendy photo collages inspired me to create this unusual photoshoot where the dishes are deconstructed and the plates with the food on them are sliced. I thought why not to try this technique with food photography and here is a new way to capture cuisine!
The dishes of this photoshoot were created by Rokas Vasiliauskas, the chef of the restaurant “Monte Pacis” in Kaunas. Most probably only those ones who are advanced in the culinary arts will dare to make these dishes from A to Z, nevertheless everyone will find some useful ideas on spicing up their menus and adding some new flavours and shapes to them.
