Nancy Silverton on a Pumpkin
Bi-Rite CreameryNancy Silverton as a pumpkin.
Nancy Silverton has been carved into a pumpkin and not as part sort of horrific Saw sequel but as an artistic homage sure to last throughout the ages -- or at least until the pumpkin rots. The hipster geniuses at San Francisco's Bi-Rite Creamery created the best piece of food art we've seen in years, carving the Mozza chef's face into a pumpkin and posting it on their Facebook page. (Guess the celebrity visage and you receive a high-five. We hope that's some sort of sundae.) It may not be Botticelli's Venus (another pumpkin carving we'd like to see), but as food art goes, Nancy Silverton's face on a pumpkin is spectacular.
