Can you find your country?
Inspired by their love of travel, the two figured it’d be cool to take the food each country it’s well known for – spices for India, tomatoes for Italy, kiwi for New Zealand.
Henry says that, “These maps show how food has traveled the globe – transforming and becoming a part of the cultural identity of that place. Who doesn’t know the saying ‘throw some shrimp on the barbie’ and not think of Australia? Who goes to France without eating bread and cheese? And who makes a Brazilian caipirinha without a fistful of limes?”
“These maps are a playful representation of our interpretation of food from around the world, painstakingly created with real unadulterated food. This project speaks to the universality of how food unites people, brings us together and starts conversation – just as we hope these beautiful maps will do too.”
Graphic designer Sarit Melmed, gives the maps a classic, vintage look with is fantastic typography skills.
