In the back streets of a place in the Thai province of Ratchaburi, lies a small shop which prepares and serves what is possibly the scariest! the sickest! the most bizarre food ever made!!
Ask yourself… Would you eat this??
Baked in special ‘forms’ and decorated with special techniques … but it remains bread.
The bakery is about 100 km east of Bangkok. They bake this bread in honor of the Buddhist principle that you shouldn’t always believe what you see!!
The question is: Would you buy it for your family? Would you eat it?
[PS: This was in fact the work of an art student. As an undergraduate art student, Kittiwat Unarrom started painting portraits. He then moved to mixed media and finally dough — a natural medium for him since his family runs the bakery where his creations are sold. Along with edible human heads crafted from dough, chocolate, raisins and cashews, Kittiwat makes human torsos, arms and feet. He uses anatomy books and his vivid memories of visiting a forensics museum to create the human parts.
He quickly began receiving regular orders from the curious and from pranksters who wanted to surprise their friends or colleagues.
Kittiwat used his confectionary slaughterhouse as his final dissertation, putting it on display at Bangkok’s Silpakorn University. It secured him a master of arts degree.
“When people see the bread, they don’t want to eat it”, he said. “But when they taste it, it’s just normal bread. The lesson is ‘don’t judge just by outer appearances.’ “]
