“A Layer For My Throat” is a feast for your eyes

13.03.2018 - Dries Tack

Ever since the first time Erik Vernieuwe and Kris De Smedt went to the Antwerp opera back in 2014, they can’t get enough of it. The food stylist and the fashion photographer respectively were so impressed by Strauss’ Elektra, they haven't missed a show ever since.

Opera was constantly on the minds of these two creatives. They spent so much time there, they started researching the settings and histories of the plays they loved. Soon their knowledge began seeping into their art.

That is how the book A Layer For My Throat started taking shape. In it the authors experiment with the recipes from opera settings adapting them to the now. They combine food and the recent Opera Vlaanderen pieces into unexpected food art. The book of photographs of their creations turned into a book (designed by Novo Typo) with an accompanying playlist.
