Isn’t this a beautiful image?
It reminds me of that Kohler faucet TV commercial: I want to design a room around it.
It, in this case, is an omelet with a mushroom base. A pastry brush was used to create the stripes. It is one of many intriguing works of food art in the six-volume Modernist Culture: The Art and Science of Cooking by Nathan Myhrvold and his team of Seattle-based chefs.
Myhrvold is renown for his use of modern techniques and space-age ingredients.
I just like the pretty pictures.
