Take a look at the beautifully arranged meals below. Like edible works of art, they were created by the hand of a chef. Just by looking at them, you can tell they”re probably pretty costly. They must be made from top-of-the-line ingredients of the finest quality…right?

Spam torchon with white cheese balls and Fuzzy Peaches.

These food arrangements are actually composed of foods you might never eat, but not because they”re too fancy. Each plate you see here is filled with the over-processed, unhealthy crud you can find in any vending machine or gas station. They”re just carefully arranged to look like something from a high-end dining establishment.

Hawaiian Bagel Bites, Cheetos, baby carrots, ranch puree, small vegetables, and chipotle. Hey, look! It has vegetables!

This ongoing project was created by Instagrammer Jacques LaMerde, who takes all the food you”d never want your kids eating and dresses it up with artsy arrangements and garnishes (including nonsensical ingredients like moss). LaMerde does this as a send-up of foodie culture. Pop-Tart parfait? Powerade gel? A sprinkling of Mike and Ikes to finish off a plate? It”s all there.

Imitation crabmeat, Vienna sausage, creamed-style corn, bbq potato chips, cocktail sauce, and Old Bay.

Jimmy Dean Sausage with canned spring vegetables, French”s, Fritos Hoops, and pistachio. The chef finishes it off with a “palate cleansing shot of fermented Lake Michigan Water [with] Nutritional Yeast Rim.” Yum!

Before it”s plated, the food (if you can call it that) is flash frozen, and then arranged with tweezers for that perfect finish. The result is obviously a satire of the tiny portions and ridiculous prices of the upscale restaurant and celebrity chef culture. As is the name Jacques LaMerde, which sounds fancy by way of being French, but actually translates to “Jacques the Shit.”

Microwaved Spicy Beef “n Bean Burrito, beef jerky, Wishbone Caesar crema, and Lemon-Lime Gatorade spheres. Served with Zesty Cheese Doritos.

Tartar of hand-cut Hot Rod, egg yolk, and “intense pickle” Doritos.

It”s amazing that with a little tweak of the presentation, Cheetos and pork rinds actually look almost appetizing. You can see tons more of this well-plated garbage on Jacques LaMerde”s Instagram.
