Feast Your Eyes: Deconstructed Tomato Salad Photographs: Ryan Matthew Valle's Roasted Tomato Salad

Where the photograph plays double duty as recipe and inspiration.

Here's a roasted tomato salad with feta cheese from French Cuisse, a remarkable blog from an 18-year-old culinary grad named William Matthew Valle.

Valle's clean, almost clinical shots depict the mise en place (above) side-by-side with the completed dish (below), a style reminiscent of Ikea’s Hembakat är Bäst and Jane Hornsby's What to Cook and How to Cook It.

While the minimalist photographic recipes might not provide outright instruction, they sure are inspiring.
