A few weeks ago I worked on several food art plates for Artizone, a local online grocery and delivery service. The food art was to celebrate the launch of their newest products, snack packs of veggies and fruits cut and ready to throw into a lunch bag or to take as a quick snack.
I loved doing these! The challenge was to work the contents of the snack packs into the food art. Very Chopped-esque. Some were easier than others, let me tell ya. People often ask whether this stuff takes a long time; it’s not the execution that takes time, but the brainstorming. And your first (or second, or third) idea may seem awesome, but once you lay everything out it can turn out to be fussy or look nothing like you originally envisioned.
I’m pleased with how these turned out, though. Here are a few of my faves:

Artizone Fun Food Contest
To celebrate, Artizone is hosting a contest: post a fun food pic on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook or Twitter and use #artizonefunwithfood and tag @artizonechi. The winner will get a MONTH’s worth of snack packs, PLUS a $50 Artizone gift card. YES, this is caps-lock-worthy because a month’s worth of packable produce is no small deal, and $50 to spend on artisanal, local Chicago fare? Winner winner chicken dinner. It’s open to Chicago residents only, unfortunately; but if you enter, let me know! I’d love to see your creations.
