What if Food Videos Were Made by Hollywood Directors?

There’s no denying that we all watch how-to videos involving recipes for all manner of food items, from galaxy cakes to bacon waffles. Even if we don’t have a kitchen, we watch these vids for their ability to make us salivate like rabid dogs. Sometimes we don’t even get to choose to watch them – they simply infiltrate our FB feeds because we have that one friend who loves to bake.

Anyway, even if you’re not a fan of foodie how-to videos, you should check out some of the videos put out by Michael Ma – the creative mind behind #foodfilms. He’s paired easy recipes in the styles of Michael Bay, Wes Anderson, and Quentin Tarantino.
