In their latest project, talented foodies/artists Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin constructed 11 beautiful world maps made solely out of food associated with each region.

The couple — united by their shared passion for "all things food, photography, travel and art" — has established an impressive portfolio over the years of unique and stunning food photography, including a recent photo series of iconic art galleries and museums made from gingerbread.

In their "Food Maps" series, the U.S. is represented by 50 states of corn, France by bread and cheese, and Italy by tomatoes. "While we know that tomatoes originally came from the Andes in South America, Italy has become the tomato king," the artists explain.

"We wanted everything to look as beautiful and playful as we could, and ultimately look like old school maps you would hang up," Hargreaves says in a behind-the-scenes video. "This project speaks to the universality of how food unites people, brings us together and starts conversation — just as we hope these beautiful maps will do too."
