With the help of make-up artist Anastasia Parquet
, French photographer Jonathan Icher
picked five different nationalities and put their iconic foods into the mouths of his models
. France is related to the croissant, a Japanese girl eats sushi, cooked spaghetti falls out of an Italian’s mouth, a man with the American flag is ready to swallow up a burger, and a girl wearing the Union Jack represents the well-known full English breakfast by eating a fried egg. The artworks playfully highlight the culinary stereotypes and heritage associated with certain nations.
On the subject of innovative food projects… ‘ere are our picks of the restaurants with a creative edge in Shanghai:
– Cheap and Chic: La Petite Fleur
is the new benchmark for fantastic food, intimate vintage surroundings and attentive service (and you don’t have to pay through the nose for it!).
– Quirky: Elefante
colours and aromas of the “Mediterraneo”
with its sleek and stylish, yet warm and vibrant interior.
– Experimental: Ultraviolet
is the first restaurant of its kind attempting to unite food with multi-sensorial technologies in order to create a fully immersive dining experience.
– Architecture: Azul Tapas Lounge
The menu is mostly tapas with Spanish, South American, and Mediterranean inspiration. The real draw, however, is the space itself. Perched atop Ferguson Lanes new eight-story annex, it boasts a patio with sweeping views of the Puxi skyline.
– Concept Store: 10 Corso Como
Aside from the shopping you can refuel at the ground-floor pasticceria, a casual terrace café serving coffee and Italian pastries, or for a higher-end bite try the fourth floor restaurant and cocktail lounge which specializes in Italian seafood, meat and pasta staples.
