While food ‘plating’ has long been an integral aspect of dining across many cultures, Instagram has clearly taken it to another level. Nowadays, every dish is carefully curated to create a perfect photo on social media. However, enhancing the visual side of food is no longer the domain of chefs in fancy restaurants. Whether it's a guy who accidentally made the perfect pile of pancakes or Mother Nature who produced the most amazing tomato, these oddly satisfying pictures of food are so perfect, it's impossible to stop looking at them.
1. Mesmerizing Cabbage Geometry

4. Watermelon Pac-Man
We are sure now that the person who created it is a big fan of Pac-man and watermelons. The work is simple and yet it creates a sense of perfection - what more do you need!
