It's bread....but would you be able to eat it?

A friend of ours in Bangkok sent this over via e-mail and I just had to share it with you!! (sorry if it's grossed you out)

A bakery in the Thai province of Ratchaburi (which is about 100km east of Bangkok) wanted to highlight the Buddhist principle that you shouldn't always believe what you see and they came up with this little delight ....

So the question is.....Would you, or indeed could you, eat it?
(I'm really not sure...I know it's bread but....)


I do have the feeling that this guy's talents are waisted in a Bakery....he should be doing Hollywood Make-up!!

JJ Beattie said...

OH, horror. What Queenie said. Yuck.

Carol said...

Queenie and JJ - LOL....I know!! Horrible aren't they!! It's hard to believe that they are only loaves with some food colouring on them!!

Mark said...

Gross. But kind of fascinating as well

LadyFi said...

Wow - that's gross. And yes, I would definitely try this!

Carol said...

Mark - They sure are...which is why I just had to blog about them!!

LadyFi - I think perhaps, once I got over the horror of them, I would too....it would just look like normal bread once sliced and buttered!! (although I think I would probably have to get someone else to slice it!)

Hi Carol...I've noticed your comments on one or two other blogs that I read so I thought I'd have a look at yours...and now I have I like the look of it so I'll stick around if you don't mind?

No...I couldn't eat that bread...I eat with my eyes first before food goes in my mouth...and yuk...no way!

Carol said...

Ayak - I don't mind at all!! Welcome :-)

Hehehe, it's a funny one isn't it...my head tells me that it's only bread but what my eyes see tells me to stay as far away from it as possible!!

Janice said...

OMG you're right about Hollywood. I think your dad should get the producers on to him for the film!

sea-blue-sky & abstracts said...

Very clever but NO, No, no I could not eat any of it - unless that is I'd been marooned on a desert island without food for a week! Lesley x

Debs said...

Yak, definitely not. I agree that this chap's talents are wasted and he should probably do well working in movies.

Suburbia said...

Wow, how amazing!

Carol said...

Janice - LOL, I think that's a great idea...he's definitely a talented chap!!

Sea Blue Sky - It's funny how much what something looks like play a part in what we eat isn't it!!

Debs - Yep, all that talent going to waste making bread!!

Suburbia - It takes a bit of getting used to doesn't it!! Very clever!!

DJ Kirkby said...

Why? xo

Carol said...

DJ - I have no idea....obviously it seemed like a good idea at the time!! (I did tell you that Thailand is a bonkers country.....lovely but bonkers!!)

I don't think I could do it - although if it smelt yummy I'd have to shut my eyes and have a go. How do people dream up these things? I remember seeing someone doing faces out of cheese once. Odd too but not revolting.

HelenMHunt said...

OMG! No - really, really not.

Talli Roland said...

Oh my good Lord. I love bread - I mean, LOVE bread! - but I'm not sure I could get stuck into this!

That is some crazy bread.

Have a great weekend Carol.

Carol said...

FF - Actually, I think a face made out of cheese would freak me out more than these!! Hehehe, as Sue said on Facebook....if it had chocolate inside it...

Helen - LOL...that was my first reaction too!!

Talli - It's erm rather stunning isn't it!! Once it was cut up I think I would be fine but i'm not sure if I could take a knife to it!!

Kevin Mullins said...

Errr, no, I don't think I could eat in. Mind you, I've had less appealing looking bread from the co-op in Malmesbury so, on the other hand.....

Ann said...

OMG, gross, no way could I eat these, just eating a baguette, had to look twice to make sure there were no wee eyes or lips hanging about on it, nope not one, back to eating.

OH - MY - GOD!

Calico Kate said...

Very very very gross, but very very very good!

Carol said...

Kevin - LOL!! I know exactly what you mean about the bread in the co-op....

Ann - You sure there were not wee eyes or lips?

Previously Lost in France - There's not much I can add to that really!! *grins*

Calico Kate - I know exactly what you mean!!
