It would seem the art world has a knack for showing off literal food-photography.

Impressively, being literal means not only are the photographed meals fairly inclusive in terms of food groups, but they’re also balanced, as in a poorly-timed sneeze could send your dinner over the edge.

The series is called The Ricettario: A Balanced Diet” (ricettario means “cookbook” in Italian) and is meant to examine the ingredients in salmon, minestrone, apple pie, and pizza margherita. Although, we think it looks more like a physics experiment of the tastiest variety.

Aziza Sullivan has always enjoyed three things in excess: food, writing, and sleeping. While the first two are happily combined, the third tends to get in the way, since it turns out the average reader is uninterested in sleep blogs. She also enjoys coffee, probably too much, if there is such a thing.
