The Etenschap Series Creatively Combines Incongruous Ingredients

Looking like the bizarre products of the Surrealist exquisite corpse game, the subjects of this Etenschap series raise quite a few questions. There is no specific answer for why a fish has been bred with a pineapple or why a pod of peas now contains blackberries, but there is a definite method behind the madness.

These mind-boggling images are very effective for the purpose of marketing, they catch the eye and they linger in one's thoughts. The Festina Lente Collective produced the peculiar compositions for a pair of restaurants called Etenschap in the Netherlands, known for exercising culinary creativity.

The imagination of the visionary owners and the chefs is what's communicated throughout the Etenschap series. They serve unexpected combinations of food that always strike an exceptional gustatory harmony, just as these pictures do visually.
