Brilliant Food Photography Meets Master GIF-Maker

Pumpkin Pie ATV Rider

If there is one coffee table book you stock up on for food-lover gifts this year, it should be Big Appetites by photographer Christopher Boffoli. Published earlier this fall, the $10 paperback (on Amazon) explores a world of tiny people who tackle full-sized food, like this Pumpkin Pie ATV Rider. Boffoli’s caption: "Professional Driver. Closed Course. Do Not Attempt." We wish we could drive across a mile-long pie, but decided to see the next best thing. In honor of F&W Pie Week, GIF-maker Trevor Carmick of Tumblr’s cult Beer Labels in Motion, animated Boffoli’s work (left).

6 Reasons to Fund MOFAD, the Museum of Food and Drink

Food tech guru and Booker & Dax cocktail genius Dave Arnold is hosting a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for his most ambitious project yet: MOFAD, the non-profit Museum of Food and Drink. Here's why you should give.

1. Puffing cannons look awesome. Arnold's video pitch, above, offers a look at the 1900s-era puffed cereal game changer, which will be the museum's first mobile exhibit. "Puffing cannon encapsulates everything that will make MOFAD great," says Arnold. "It's explosive, it's entertaining and it tells a story."

2. "Dave Arnold is the culinary Google," according to chef Anita Lo.

3. Pastry innovator Brooks Headley of Del Posto thinks Arnold is the only person who could pull off a project of this scale.

4. Chefs David Chang, Wylie Dufresne and Mario Batali also think it's a good idea.

5. $50 gets you a durable MOFAD tote made by Brooklyn's Baggu.

6. Pledge $400 and you can party with Arnold while drinking his extraordinary cocktails and eating puffed rice snacks.

Watch the video for further convincing from Arnold's superstar culinary friends.
