Making food great to look at and delicious.
Did you ever think that you could create a turtle out of an egg toast, an owl out of cottage cheese or a face from pita bread. That’s because whoever came up with the norm that you shouldn’t play with your food took eating way too seriously, and perhaps wanted to thwart your imagination in terms of what you can do with it.
Well meet Bill and Claire Wurtzel who have come with an ingenious approach of encouraging not just kids, but families to bring fun back to mealtimes. Through their book, Funny Food Made Easy, the pair shows how to create edible food art that are not only delicious and healthy, but also wonderfully silly and funny.
The how-to book brings forth a lot of easy-to-follow guidelines and illustrations that kids and families can follow along and artistically create their own nutritious snacks, breakfasts and lunches. The step-by-step instructions include ingredients and recipes, as well as lighthearted pictures that make the entire process fun.
The book also has thoughtful quotes from inspiring people like Mahatma Gandhi, Michelangelo and Michelle Obama all in the name of bringing fun to eating healthy. So next time before you embark on eating, consider turning your waffles into the Eiffel Tower, scrambled eggs into birds and bananas into giraffes, planes or skateboarders. Go ahead, have some fun with your food.
