Red - Creativity With Food

Here's something homegrown  - our very own Hong Yi aka Red, a Malaysian artist-architect who challenged herself to create a new piece of food art every day in the month of March and share the results on Instagram. There were only two rules:
1. Only food can be used
2. The creations must be placed on a white plate, which serves as the backdrop

Sharing 10 of my favourites from her Instagram page. More @

Day 29 - Goldfish In Consommé
Goldfish made of pickled ginger, eyeballs of century eggs, grass made of dill and jelly made of chicken consomme and gelatine.

Day 28  - Red Cabbage Marchesa Salad
The idea was inspired by Eva Longoria in her Marchesa dress at the Met Gala 2010!

Day 27 - The Kuala Lumpur Skyline
Assembled from nasi lemak (our iconic dish) ingredients. And if you are wondering what nasi lemak   is, read here.

Day 25 - Field of Tulips
Tulips made of bird's eye chilies.

Day 23 - Egg Plant Circus

Day 20 - Tiny Tutus
Made of chocolate syrup and shaved coloured white chocolate.

Day 19 - Owl-nion

Day 18 -  Cucumber Landscape

Day 16 - Three Little Pigs
Wolf made of charcoal bread, pigs made of kidney beans

Day 9 - Richard Parker
Tiger made of chopped carrots, white radish and prunes


  1. They are so interesting and beautiful, although those goldfish are a little too real for me.

  2. Those Goldfish look so real that I would almost be afraid to eat them.... Love the tulips too!

  3. These are really nice, I'd like that owl for a summer gathering, and the tiger would be good any time with the kiddos. :)

    This is a fun share.

  4. Not only are they VERY creative, but so lovely too!

  5. OMG! They are stunning! These people, able to create art with food, must be like Gods or something.

  6. Veronica - so very creative and pretty! Cheers

  7. Wow! What an artist. The goldfish were unbelievable. How does charcoal bread taste?

  8. Wonderful! Thanks for linking this one up, it's a great choice :)
    Looking forward to see you again next week, Veronica, I'd love to have you back. If you'd like to get e-mail reminders of the hop going live, please subscribe @
