Have you ever had a meal so moan-worthily good you wish you could take a memento home with you? Well, now you can. Food For Everyone has just dropped its much-anticipated 2023 poster series, including prints of Melbourne staple recipes like Attica's jelly bean ice cream, Lune's coconut pandan croissant and Cibi's miso soup.

Since first launching in August 2020 to fundraise for Foodbank during the height of the pandemic, Food for Everyone's Artist Collections have strived to interweave stories about food, explore ways of seeing and celebrate the artistry on both the canvas and the plate. Food for Everyone also donates ten meals per poster purchased to its charity partner SecondBite.

The second collection features a brand new series of limited-edition culinary posters featuring works by Nadia Hernández, Simon Fitzsimon, Max Blackmore, Carla McRae, Aretha Brown and Libby Haines. Gemma Leslie, the founder of Food for Everyone, curated the series and paired chefs and artists to platform the best creative voices in food and art.

"Playing matchmaker between our chefs and artists is so much fun," said Leslie. "We undertake a lot of research first to make sure they are creatively and energetically matched but ultimately there is a lot of chef between the chef and the artists. The most exciting part of the whole process is seeing how each artist has interpreted the recipe. And, of course, sharing the final artwork with the chef."

The posters are available in two sizes ($120 for an A2 size, and $90 for an A3 format), and only 300 prints of each design are available. The designs are printed on paper made entirely from 100 per cent recycled coffee cups. You can purchase the posters on the Food for Everyone website here.
