With his À La Cart project, the American photographer Tom Lakeman is having fun cooking together all the ingredients written on shopping lists, to create the strangest recipes. For this series, the photographer collects the shopping lists from total strangers, found on the floor by chance when he goes shopping. Tom Lakeman then purchases the corresponding elements and combines them all together in a recipe. Finally, he documents the found shopping list side by side with the recipe developed, creating a funny and offbeat series, but definitely inedible. The book from the project is currently being funded on Kickstarter. I also recommend that you take a look at the project Eating For Two, the most improbable and craziest recipes from pregnant women.
