Appealing to what I can only imagine is the microscopic section in the Venn diagram of "haute couture gastronomers" and "people who eat three cheeseburgers in one sitting" comes Fancy Fast Food. Creator Erik Trinidad creates culinary classics strictly from menu items at famous fast food joints, occasionally throwing in a sprig of tarragon or a chiffonade of leek for irony.

Before you bite into that seared pollock cake (which is actually McDonald's), be forewarned: While the transformed Fancy Fast Food looks appetizing, it is still just that, as Trinidad makes no effort to alter the taste.
