What’s your favourite cuisine? Mine is without a doubt Italian. So much so that when I was living there, you could tell – I was a little more rounded. I couldn’t get enough of the mouthwatering pizzas, the crunchy arancini, and the delicious pasta. Then, of course there’s the red wine; Nero D’Avola is my favourite, and the most dangerous.

I came across a collection of photos of flags made from food, taken by an Australian Advertising agency called WHYBINTBW. The images are of flags from around the world, made from the cuisine of that country. The agency came up with the idea and took these delicious photographs to promote the Sydney International Food Festival, Australia’s largest food festival.

 

 

The time and effort they put into imagining, researching, arranging and producing these photos is impressive. There are a few flags in particular that need mentioning: Thailand’s flag made from sweet chilli sauce, shredded coconut and blue swimmer crab is imaginative, to say the least. The UK’s flag, a large delicious looking scone covered with different flavour jams, is making my tummy rumble as I type.

I’ll let you decide which is your favourite… Buon appetito!
