London Made from Fruits and Vegetables


One of the famous snappers in the world Carl Warner together with his team of five assistants designed and created London's most famous structures from fruits and vegetables.

All in all it took the team three weeks and 26 different types of fruits and vegetables to recreate London's skyline.

The foody model features the Big Ben with a face made of lemon slices, The Houses of Parliament made using asparagus, green and runner beans and baby sweetcorn, The London Eye made of green beans that Warner decided to use as spokes and baby plum tomatoes used to represent pods.

Among other constructions, the model featured the Gherkin building accurately recreated using two types of melon and enriched with green beans that replaced the famous spiralling glass frames.

The team used pineapple piers, celery and shredded wheat towers to reproduce The Tower Bridge and breadsticks, spelt crackers and mini shredded wheat to recreate The Tower of London. In the video you can see the entire process.
