Everyone adores food. The love of food is the strongest most widely felt experience mankind has ever recorded and it is right that it would inspire some of our greatest works. The Last Supper and even The Big Banana, wouldn’t exist if this passion for taste didn’t run so deep in our veins.

Why then, are our most famous artworks so lacking in representation of the food we love? There is no great study on pizza and no one ever built a marble statue of a hot dog and we are all still waiting on that ballet about burgers. We put our crack team of food historians on this and have come up with a shocking discovery. For more than 200 years there has been a conspiracy to keep great food out of art. We’re not sure if it’s The Illuminati, The Freemasons or The Thinspiartion people, but someone has been painting food out of great art for centuries!

While historians search for more clues to who is behind this tasteless tragedy, our restoration experts have been able to restore the original food paintings to their former glory, and we’re unveiling them for this first time for you now. Below our the first 5 classic works we have been able to verify and restore.

The Mona Lisa – Leonardo Da Vinci

Why does the Mona Lisa smile? Check out what she’s got up her sleeve

The Creation of Adam – Michelangelo

People have always wondered why God and Adam have appeared so limp in the arms that look, otherwise, desperate to grasp one another. If you look closely, you'll see they’re just trying not to break this chip.

The Girl With The Pearl Earring – Johannes Vermeer

The girl has always looked startled. You would too is someone caught you with the last slice of pizza

Whistler’s Mother - James McNeil Whistler

More like Whistler’s Mother’s dinner. Now where’s that delivery guy at?

The Persistence of Memory – Salvador Dali

Memory is persistent, especially when you’re remembering all the great pizza’s you’ve had.

No. 5 - Jackson Pollock

This style makes a whole lot more sense when you realise it was an ode to condiments.
