Food and Drinks Infographics: A Visual Guide to Culinary Pleasures 

It was Apicius, a Roman gourmet of the 1st Century, who allegedly coined the phrase “We eat first with our eyes” (Delwiche, 2012). Although you probably won’t start to salivate just by looking at these beautiful-made infographics, it is definitely a feast to the eyes. Enjoy the delicious visual exploration of foods and drinks, as well as practical tips and techniques that are indispensable in the kitchen and for throwing the best stress-free parties.
