They’re straightforward. They’re silly. They’re healthier. They are clever. They’re artistic. They’re tasty. They’re fun. They’re a wonderful way to start off the day. 1 breakfast at a time, Bill and Claire Wurtzel are determined to make you laugh and consume and play and laugh some more. Riffing over the many years with oatmeal, eggs, apples, and nuts, it is ultimately ours to share…Funny Foods! Not because Joost Elffers’ Perform With Your Food has meals been so ridiculous and so endlessly diverting. Mother and father and kids will giggle via breakfast. Teachers and students can laugh some far more producing snacks or desserts soon after lunch. This is a book filled with nothing but engaging spontaneity and simplicity that makes you say, “I can do that.” And, you can...the consequences are yummy. Actually, who doesn’t like to play with food? Bill Wurtzel, a jazz guitarist, has been generating these plates for his wife, Claire, for as several many years as they’ve been married. Now they are turning a pastime into an art type with a social message. Their aim is to discourage obesity by inspiring children—and adults—to boost their consuming routines by generating meals and snacks that are not only nutritious, but fun. These are not your mother’s smiley-encounter sandwiches. In Bill’s planet, carrots flip into airplanes boiled eggs into jugglers, and pears into guitar players. As gracefully as Picasso’s ceramic plates discovered limitless type so do Wurtzel’s portraits, which seem to be to expand out of almost anything—cheerios and bananas lox and bagels oatmeal, blueberries, and strawberries. Often you consider he is portrait artist and you could swear you just noticed Sigmund Freud emerging from a pear or Shakespeare growing out of an apple. Occasionally the plates are just plain fanciful. “Your breakfasts do not have to search like they’ll hang in the Louvre,” he says. “It’s the gesture that counts.” But it positive looks like he riffed on Matisse’s paper cutout dancers with a papaya. In addition to producing Humorous Food - which is made up of each recipes and how-to images - Bill and Claire have been conducting workshops for kids at Public School 188 on the Lower East Side of New York, teaching them to use their imaginations to increase their wellness “rather than just placing lettuce and greens on their trays.”
