Wild Iceland
Photo and caption by E. Arencibia
If already one of the most beautiful landscape ever seen, imagine to get there and find this wild and majestic Icelandic horse posing for me. That morning I was wondering if it would be worth it to go…bad weather, cold, not good light conditions…but you never know what you are going to find.

The doors of mordor are open
Photo and caption by Jeffry Arguedas
Never before had I seen such a majestic eruption of a volcano and at the same time feel secure. Camping one night in the Acatenango Volcano and having a volcano as active as the Fire a few kilometers away, it was an incomparable experience, I felt trapped in the book “The Lord of the Rings” walking through Mordor. Walking for more than 5 hours with cold clothes near 3900 meters, food, 5 liters of water and a tripod, was exhausting, but each step made it worthwhile.

Formation
Photo and caption by Niklas Weber
When we arrived at the rio tarcoles in costa rica and I saw what a fantastic formation the sharp-mouthed crocodiles are, I could not help myself, I started my drone and begun to photograph them from the air. My heart was beating like crazy because I was incredibly excited, on the one hand I was a bit scared for the drone, on the other hand I was so happy about the unique moment.

Whether plates are prepared through molecular gastronomy in the foremost restaurants around the globe or through simple, rustic methods in your own kitchen, beauty can lie within any preparation. As a society connected through social media, more and more people take and share photos of their food, further connecting us all through the love of the perfect bite. As a food writer and culinary explorer, I have had the privilege of feasting on wonderful dishes by some of the world’s most renowned and respected chefs. Having the honor to gather the gorgeous images found on the following pages further fueled my desire to share the beauty that can be discovered through food. —Ari Bendersky

Don’t flip through these pages on an empty stomach…
