In her recent book, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence, Amy Sedaris urges readers to make their food come alive, especially when entertaining young guests. Earlier this year, The Leonard Lopate Show on New York public radio station WNYC sponsored the Amy Sedaris Craft Challenge, a call to enliven food with googly eyes. The response was phenomenal, with over 300 photos submitted. Amy herself chose the winners. Check out all the entries as a slide show or as a Flickr album.
While these two entries were not among the finalists, I found them to be especially compelling. But then, what food doesn't look better with googly eyes?
