There’s a pretty big difference between the flat Play-Doh cookie/pizzas we used to make as children (usually purple or some equally un-cookie-like color), and these models designed for the Baltic Travel Company to represent the “national foods” of 40 different countries worldwide.
Unlike our old Play-Doh pizookies, for instance, these small plasticine sculptures actually resemble the foods they’re supposed to. There’s a pink skewered pig for Filipino lechon and a Chinese peking duck dressed with tiny spring onion sprigs. There’s Irish colcannon, German currywurst, and Mexican chiles en nogada, each rendered with such skill that you kind of wished you never graduated kindergarten.
It’s an impressive spread to be sure, if only to rehash the whole “around the world” food idea again in a way that isn’t a listicle. We are missing the tiny Play-Doh sushi though.
