Snapshots of food continued to dominate social media and restaurants around the world are taking notice.
I think it’s been a game-changer.Social media in internet means that people can go online, see stuffs that inspire them and literally, all out there.Not only what you can do but how to do it is all online.
While dining has always been a social event, now it has also become a social media event.Chefs and businesses looking to cash in are creating unique dishes that consumers can share online like Bangkok’s latest hipster zone creating quite a buzz with dishes that feature bugs one cafe in Amsterdam devoted a photogenic menu to the avocado.
This idea came form Instagram, it’s 2 Dutch guys saw the opportunity through various Instagram profiles that are based on avocados and food styling.The popularity is incredible so they just figured if we can make a restaurant that serves food that looks as good as this and also tastes amazing, it’s got to be sure to succeed.
Greenslade says they had around 36000 followers on Instagtam before the restaurant even opened in March. The trend is also inspiring artists.In Ukraine a Donald Trump portrait made out of dill.In London tasty recreations of famous paintings made entirely out of chocolates.As a material it works like paint for example but then paint, you know, it doesn’t snap, it doesn’t break off, it’s not,you know, an issue of this too much heat or cold or damp.And speaking of chocolates, this Factory in Belgium uses 3d printers to make edible mini sculptures.
3D chocolate printing is a new tool available of chocolate and pastry makers to create new forms, new things to better express their creativity.
Creativity that they hope will bring in the dough, after all in this digital age, a meal is only as good as it looks online.
