an army marches on its stomach

A gourmet chef and a videographer have partnered to transform some of the world’s most unappetising, brutally utilitarian food—rations or the Meal, Ready-to-Eat (MRE)—from military forces all over the into works of art, suitable for presentation in the finest restaurants.
Aside from the way that the main course and dessert are arranged, the series is an interesting snap-shot about differences in palate, familiarity and notions of nutrition and sustenance. Visit the website via the link above for a full gallery of army rations, both packed and unfurled, from across the globe and video documenting the creative process.
