Chef Ben Churchill produces exquisite dessert art that has the potential to puzzle the viewer by way of its realistic and often unappealing presentation. Putting great effort and impeccable attention to the smallest detail, the culinary visionary is able to create edible masterpieces that take the appearance of ordinary everyday objects. For example, the 'Washing Up Sponge' is a dessert art that at first glance could be understandably mistaken for the real thing. However, the gourmet dish is actually "an olive oil sponge cake served with mint crumbs, milk foam bubbles, and baked apple puree."
From Vanilla Panacotta ashtrays to Orange Parfait moldy fruits, the realistic juxtaposition between flavor and unappealing exteriors makes the dessert art that much more impressive and noticeable.
