Artist makes mouth-watering sculptures of cities entirely out of food

Food artist Carl Warner created the pieces include scenes from Paris, Tokyo and Rome, all made from ingredients you might find in your kitchen.

The artworks include a Parisian market scene, featuring buildings made from a mix of blue and hard cheeses, leeks and a chocolate Eiffel Tower.

The Pantheon, and a cobbled back street in Rome, were brought to life using pasta, parma ham and Parmesan cheese.

A serene zen garden and tea ceremony overlooking Mount Fuji have been made from maki rolls, ginger and shiitake mushrooms.

The culinary creations were commissioned by following a poll of 9,000 adults across 29 countries which identified Paris, Tokyo and Rome as the top foodie destinations.

Carl Warner, 55, from Liverpool, said: “When approached me with the idea, I instantly knew this project was right up my bean cobbled, blue cheese street.

“It was a great opportunity for me to bring images and scenes of these hugely popular foodie destinations to life in an exciting and contemporary way.

“I hope that these images will not only blow people away, but inspire them to get online, get booking and not just 'sight-see' but 'sight-taste’.”

More than half of those polled admit foodie experiences on holiday are what make getaways most memorable.

It also emerged 86 per cent are more likely to take photos of their food than their friends.

Pasta and pizza are the dishes they’re most likely to post on social media, along with desserts like donuts and freak shakes and steak.
