Incredibly Realistic Meals Painted Onto Plates That Look Good Enough to Eat


Artist Jacqueline Poirier, who refers to herself as “the crazy plate lady” and is the Artist-in-Residence at the Toronto Ritz Carlton, creates amazing plate paintings. Her work includes celebrity portraits, nature scenes and incredibly realistic meals that look good enough to eat. In an interview with Instagram, Poirier admitted her fondness for her food creations.

I think they are my favorites because they seem to be the most realistic. …They appeal to the masses (vegetarians included!) and act as great conversation pieces around the table.”
