Check Out This Beautifully Disgusting 12-course Meal in a Can


When it comes to canned food, let’s be real, in most cases we’re just deciding between one set of flavors and the next. That’s where designer Chris Godfrey comes in and his project ‘All in One,’ a design he put together that incorporates 12 different courses of a meal into one convenient can.

The design lends Godfrey’s commentary on canned food and the gimmicks that come along with differentiating one product from the next. Here’s what he has to say on the project:

Contemporary culture means on every trip into town; you’re bombarded with gimmicks galore. Gimmicks often diminish their products to turn a profit; downgrading on the content but selling you something thats ‘50% more’. The All in One 12 course meal offers the average Joe; the chance to dine like royalty without the washing up.

While the can only exists in design form, Godfrey took care to make each layer truly believable. Here’s what each layer consists of:

  1. A selection of local cheeses with sourdough bread
  2. Pickled Kobe beef with charred strawberry
  3. Ricotta ravioli with a soft egg yolk
  4. Shitake mushroom topped with filled peppers
  5. Halibut poached in truffle butter in a coconut crepe
  6. Risotto foraged ramps, prosciutto and fresh parmesan
  7. French onion soup with fresh thyme and gruyere cheese
  8. Roast pork belly and celeriac root puree
  9. Palate cleanser, pear ginger juice
  10. Rib eye steak with grilled mustard greens
  11. Crack pie with milk ice cream on a vanilla tuile
  12. French canele with a malt barley and hazelnut latte
