New York is famous for its food scene, but lately, the once-overflowing pool of potential chef applicants has begun to run dry. The reason? It’s a pricey town to live in, and for chefs obsessed with local ingredients, smaller towns with vibrant food cultures are looking way more appealing.
Giuseppe Arcimboldo was a 16th-century artist who liked to play with his food, transforming it into the building blocks of many of his fantastical portraits.
