Flavorful World’s Friday Fourplay offers up a bite-sized tidbit of info on each of the four food- and drink-related things we found most interesting each week.
Put Your Meals Where These Lips Are
Few things are as guaranteed to make your next dinner party unforgettable as a set of dishes that threaten to steal and eat your food before you can. Israeli ceramics artist Ronit Baranga has created a set of ceramic dinnerware featuring three-dimensional fingers and mouths rendered with a degree of realism that is equal parts disturbing and awe-inspiring. Dubbed “The Feast,” the set was recently exhibited at Bet-Binyamini Contemporary Ceramics Center in Tel-Aviv. I haven’t yet decided how to feel about dishes that appear to enjoy feasting as much as I do, but I do know I’m finding them near impossible to stop looking at.
Converse Among Your Soup
A collaboration between sneaker company Converse and the Andy Warhol Foundation has spawned a line of trainers to will feature the artist’s iconic works of art. Warhol’s famous Campbell’s soup cans are being rendered in the classic red, vegetarian blue, and in monochrome prints. The high and low-top Chuck Taylors will be available online and in stores beginning on February 7th, 2015, and will go for between $35 and $90 , with a portion of the profits going to the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Wearable art is the best art, am I right?

London’s GoT Food
Because hungers cuts deeper than swords, a Game of Thrones pop-up restaurant will open in London for a three-day banquet beginning on Friday, February 13th, 2015. Themed after a meeting of the Small Council in King’s Landing, its menu will feature courses with names like “The Lies of Tyrion Lanninster and his Proclaimed Innocence” and “Poached Veal Tongue with Beetroot, Horseradish and Oldtown Mustard.” Enter at the HBO website for a chance to win seats (thrones?) at the table and hopefully reach the meal’s end with nary a reference to either matrimony or shades of crimson.

Show the World Your Sports Huevos
Don’t know how much overlap exists between fans of sports and fans of hard-boiled eggs, but anyone who lives in the union of that particular Venn Diagram will appreciate this product. Sports Huevos are plastic molds that shape hard-boiled eggs into golf, soccer, and tennis balls one can eat. Fun and easy to use, they seem like an easy way to add a little humor to sports-themed parties. Or perhaps, to pretend to be a giant. We’d never judge you.
