Our Fancy Foods
Emma Pattison

"Our Fancy Foods, Ourselves" is a piece exploring New York's Fancy Food Show, the birthplace of "exotic, expensive, absurd, and occasionally delicious snacks." Originally published through Eater, but re-imagined here as part of a Lucky Peach publication. Based off the author's ostentatious retelling of the event, I pulled from the visual language of grocery store advertisements and all of their burst-filled, neon glory.
