Talented food photographer Henry Hargreaves is at it again. Instead of impressing us with flaming burgers or Rothko paintings recreated with rice, he's crafted lovely world maps made entirely of food.

The New Zealand native paired up with New York-based stylist Caitlin Levin for his series Food Maps. Together they assembled maps of countries using ingredients associated with each culture.  For instance, India is made up of spices while France is composed of cheese and bread,  Japan of seaweed, and so forth.

"These maps are a playful representation of our interpretation of food from around the world, painstakingly created with real unadulterated food. This project speaks to the universality of how food unites people, brings us together and starts conversation - just as we hope these beautiful maps will do too," Hargreaves told My Modern Metropolis.

Graphic designer Sarit Melmed was in charge of the cool typography used in each gorgeous map. Watch how these incredible Food Maps were crafted and check out the incredible images below:
