"Hidden amongst the bounties from the farmer’s market an occasional fruit or vegetable stands out and asks to be reinterpreted beyond the stir fry, ragout or salad. These examples of anthropomorphic shapes are prepared and presented to delight the senses, engage the eye and mind, and to contribute to our well being in forms that are unexpected and familiar."
