Is this ‘Food in Art’ or ‘Art in Food’?

Here’s a question. How many of you believe that if your food looks good then it’ll taste good too? Well psychologically, it’s this very idea that’s keeping a lot of commercial food chains and Fine Dining restaurants afloat. People will pay through their nose just to eat artfully presented food. Some artists like to push the boundaries of Food and Art a little bit more to create wonderfully delectable Food Art.

Feast your eyes on this amazing collection of Food! Or is it Art? You decide.
