While food presentation, or ‘plating’ has long been an important aspect to dining across many cultures, the dawn of the Instagram era has seemingly taken it to another level.

These days, dining out can feel like a trip to a tourist landmark. Dishes are carefully documented and curated for the visual satisfaction of virtual diners on social media. However, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of food is not just the domain of chefs in fancy restaurants.

Sometimes the humble green-grocer on the corner will take great pride in his produce, and carefully arrange his fruit and veg in a pleasing manner for his customers. Maybe you accidentally made a pancake that arranged itself into a triumph of geometry, or more often than not, Mother Nature was just awesome and produced the sexiest damn onion you have ever seen.

We here at Bored Panda have compiled a list of the most gorgeous grub we could find, whether it’s satisfyingly symmetrical or just plain tasty-looking! Scroll down below to check it out!

You seem to have never worked with Photoshop... It might have been done with cones, as others suggested, or not, but not every "fake" thing has to be Photoshop. As someone who is working professionally with it, I can tell you that this would be rather difficult to do convincingly, as you have quite a lot of different textures. I am sorry for the rant, but it's such an annoying thing to read all the time. Someone has no idea how something works, there... must be photoshopped.

Somewhere Under The Carrot

Somewhere Under The Carrot

reddit.com Report

Victor Calamity
Community Member

From MentalFloss.com: Originally, purple carrots were the norm, but there were some offshoots. Yellow and white ones appeared in the wild. Over time, 17th-century Dutch carrot growers managed to cultivate these yellow and white ones carrots into the orange ones we're familiar with today. The purple ones still do exist, but they're by far the minority in the world of carrot colors. Want to try some? Beware — there may be a good reason why purple carrots are now the uncommon breed: the orange ones taste better...
