Instagram Chef Turns Junk Food Into High-End Cuisine

At first, these fantastic plates of food look like they belong in some luxurious award-winning fine-dining restaurant. But if you look carefully, you’ll notice that that may not be the case: they’re completely made out of nothing but junk food.

Instagram chef Jacques La Merde (which translates literally to “James The Shit”) has turned into an internet sensation. By simply preparing/plating typical everyday items (mainly junk food) in a skillful and creative way, with the final product looking like something that just got out of Gordon Ramsay’s kitchen, Chef La Merde is revolutionizing (and apparently winning) the culinary world. The account has over 142k followers so far.

Take a look at some examples of how the no Michelin star chef transforms the world’s favorite junk food into fancy, high-end cuisine.
