How food is presented can shape the way we interact with it. Just take a look at your phone, for instance. Today’s world of social media is inundated with pictures of pretty food that make our mouths water. A picture is worth 1000 words, and looking good implies tasting good.
This week, we bring you an episode on the ways that food and style play off each other, from culinary photography to fashion to restaurant design. We learn about how trends are changing in food styling and listen to an editor matching her outfits to her drinks. We hear from a New York artist making edible fashion, and explore how restaurant spaces can tell stories.
