Here is my laughable attempt at trying to figure out how to paint starry night using food. I give you my version of Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh. Watch this video first, then read the rest of the instructions.
I have never done anything like this and so I was nervous that it would not turn out. In the end it tasted yummy, a little like shepherd pie. My one complain is that using purple potato on top of regular potato wasn’t the best choice. Potato on potato tastes too potatoey. Hopefully, future Eat Your Art projects will turn out better.
Time needed: 3 hours.
How to paint Starry Night using food
- I started by making mashed potato
- Use potato as canvas
Using a square plate, I spread out the mashed potato as a canvas all over.
- Fry onion
Deep fry sliced onions until they are caramelized.
- Place onions on canvas
Place the onions on the mashed potato for the tree that is in the forefront of the painting
- Deep fry purple potato
Deep fry purple potato and layout as the sky across your painting. Also place slices of boiled eggs for stars in the sky.
- Fry the vegetarian ground beef.
I fried mushrooms and vegetarian ground beef. Placed it as the ground in the painting.
This is what it looked like in the end.
I have been watching How To Cook That videos by Ann Reardon for a while and I felt inspired to create something similar but focused on savory instead of sweet. Here is the amazing Van Gogh Starry Night video on How To Cooked that that sparked the idea.
