Crepes vs. Bratwurst: World Cup Matches Reimagined With Food

Jul 08, 2014

The World Cup isn't just about soccer or athleticism -- it's about bringing people together and taking pride in one's country and culture, right? To emphasize that part of the event, artist George Zisiadis decided to focus on one key part of culture: food.

He chose one popular dish from several different nations -- mussels and fries for Belgium, acarajé for Brazil, and so on -- and then combined them.

"Rather than focus on its adversarial nature, I wanted to playfully re-imagine the World Cup and celebrate how it brings cultures together," Zisiadis told Mashable. "Just like futbol, food also represents nationalities and brings people together."
