L.A. artist–turned–chef Craig Thornton creates stunning dishes like this one, titled Wolves in the Snow.

Craig Thornton wants all of his dining experiences to be hyper-immersive. At the installation of his wildly popular Wolvesmouth supper club in the Santa Monica Museum of Art, he introduced one of his most dramatic dishes, called Wolves in the Snow. Among its dozen components are grilled venison, preserved blackberry, fried moss and pine gelée, which evoke the aftermath of a wolf attack on a deer. wolvesmouth.com.
