Colored Food

Photographer Lawrie Brown presents delicious and wholesome foods with a difference: They are an odd color. In the series Colored Food, you get chicken, ice cream, corn, crackers, cereal, and other dishes. The actual food looks good, and you know how hard it is to make food look good in a photograph. Yet you can’t imagine eating them, just because of the unsesttling and unnatural color.

The Kool-Ade looks pretty good, because we are used to Kool-Ade in weird colors. The pasta looks unappetizing because you can tell it has paint on it instead of sauce. But the rest are just strange. You might get me to eat the sundae, but I’d be expecting that syrup to taste like artificial grape flavor, and that just ruins the experience, no matter what the actual flavor. See the entire series at Brown's website. -via Laughing Squid

i have no problem seeing food covered in that purple stuff, we have a delicacy here in the Philippines called ube halaya or ube jam. It's so delicious you can just eat it just by itself. And i would imagine that ice cream is just avocado flavor with ube syrup, i haven't tried that combination, but i'll try it on the weekend see how it tastes, and seeing it'll be holy week, i'm sure my grandma would love that.

Loved to read your blog. I would like to suggest you that traffic show most people read blogs on Mondays. So it should encourage blogger to write new write ups over the weekend primarily

About 10+ years ago, when weird-colored ketchup was a thing, I bought some blue margarine and used it to make some oatmeal cookies. My dad refused to eat them, because he said it looked like they were moldy.
