Pinch Food Design is the latest innovation hitting the N.Y.C. culinary scene, bringing small sumptuous touches to surprising pieces of artsy eats.
TJ Girard who heads the design team and the chef-in-command Bob Spiegel have combined their kitchen-savvy skills to create mini meals made to look like intricate edibles using even household items to display the goods. Some of their creations include an appetizer basil crusted filet mignon precariously presented on the knobs of a cabinet, and a tiny desert pastry hole-punched and hung on wire hooks made for the hungry.
The design that easily wins over small stomachs is the compacted spaghetti and meatball sampler, a taste of the classic pasta dish that can be consumed in one bite. Pinch Food Design conceptions may be light on content, but they are definitely loaded with creativity.
