Art meets gastronomy as the Experimental Food Society stages its annual exhibition in east London this weekend.
The event, billed as a 'Spectacular', brings together leading lights of Britain's culinary arts industry, each with an installation that showcases their food-sculpting talents.
Among the performers are artist Michelle Wibowo, who will create a life sized suckling pig cake...
... and landscaper Carl Warner, who works with fruits and vegetables, cheeses, breads and fish - even salami, as seen here - to make his extraordinary foodscapes.
Some of the artists will be creating works on site: hand and foot sculpting for instance by bread artist Sharon Baker.
Chocolate painter Sid Chidiac meanwhile will be upstaging his portrait of Charlie Chaplin by unveiling a giant painting of the Queen, in a suit with hat and pearls, all in chocolate.
The exhibition, on Saturday 25 September at The Brickhouse E1, is designed to challenge our perceptions of food and show - in the words of the society - "there is more to life than just swallowing".
It will be followed by an evening banquet finale at which diners can feast on the artworks accompanied by food-related music and a burlesque dancer in a semi-edible Marie Antoinette costume.
What are these?
