• Shared Interest Groups
The Food/Cooking Shared Interest Group invites you to a throw down with an Edible Food Challenge!
Food is one thing that many of us turn to for comfort in quarantine. Whether you’re baking more, trying new recipes, perfecting your omelet-making skills, or just look forward to your next meal, food is there for us. Let’s highlight the beauty of food in all its colors, textures, shapes and sizes for CC’s very own Edible Art Challenge! Take a famous work of art and recreate it using only food items — for a little inspiration, check out these awesome renditions of famous artworks.
Once you’ve perfected your masterpiece, please email at least one photo to email@example.com. We hope to feature your submissions in a future Friday Five!
