Anca Gray is a food artist with a difference, rather than using paints, pen, or even pencil, she creates her work using broken egg shells.
The impressive food art is made by breaking thousands of eggs shells which are then painted with white acrylic paint.
Speaking about her work, the artist says: “As I explore the life and history contained in these discarded kitchen scraps, and other bits of found objects, I allow their stories to work on my own biases of brokenness and wholeness, of vulnerability, of being and becoming. My work is a relentless search for poetry in the debris, an affirmation of life and possibility."
You can see some of her work below and find more on Etsy where she utilises even more ingredients from the kitchen such as tea and coffee.
Dal is one of those recipes that goes all the way back to the Indus Valley Civilisation. Unlike dishes such as biryani, brought to India by the Moghuls, it is one of those foods that has always been there. It is therefore a building block of Indian culture.
