Crocheted Cajun

Writer and "food artist" Clare Crespo has knitted an entire Mardi Gras feast. On display at Heath Ceramics in Los Angeles, her pieces include fabric versions of seafood gumbo, beignets and café au lait, king cake, catfish po' boy, and more. Her oysters are shown here.

If you live in the Los Angeles area, the show's opening party is on February 6 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Heath. There will be complimentary Abita beer and other Fat Tuesday–friendly treats.
