Genius makes a glorious portrait of Mama Coco entirely out of food

Standard

This is One Good Thing, a weekly column where we tell you about one of the few nice things that happened this week.


If you love the movie Coco (and if you don’t, you’re a monster), prepare to cry all over again thanks to this stunning recreation of the film’s titular Mama Coco made entirely of food.

MAMA COCO from COCO Mash potato, vermicelli noodles, purple cabbage, shrimp, white tortilla wrap, tomato Mama Coco reminds me so much of my naneh – the most kindest, selfless person I ever knew- not a single bad bone in her body. My naneh lived with us growing up, she would walk me to school, cook the most delicious meals and would tell the most amazing stories before bed- my favourite – Shangool, mangool hepeh angoor. As I got older, life got in the way and I visited her less and less. After a few years my naneh moved back to Iran where she eventually developed dementia. Even through this dementia when I would talk to her she would still remember my voice and call me her Zanboor 🐝 Every year I would tell myself – this year would be the year that I would go visit her in Iran- but again life got in the way and I never did. 😔 To this day my biggest regret was not travelling overseas to see her one last time before she passed. I miss her smell, I miss her voice, I miss her. 😔 If you are lucky enough to have a grandparent still alive- pick up the phone – call them, visit them as they don’t have much longer on this earth and one day you will regret it- just like me. They say everyone has a guardian angel and I know my naneh is mine. This one is for you Naneh, I love you Love your Zanboor ❤️🐝 . . .

It’s the work of Laleh Mohmedi, who started getting creative with her son Jacob’s meals and made a thing of creating these works of art using food. 

The Jacob’s Food Diaries Instagram account is full of more of these creations for your enjoyment. And with each photo, Mohmedi details exactly what foods she used to create each plate in case you want to give it a go (good luck). 

And if you want another example of a Pixar character that will make you burst into tears, may I suggest Up‘s Carl? 

Every plate, even the one of Heath Ledger’s Joker from The Dark Knight, looks stunning and delicious and not at all scary. 

Bon appétit and happy sobbing.
