Having spent many hours slaving over food to make it look just right for a photo shoot, we literally stopped in our tracks when we saw the work that's been done for the new IKEA cookbook — which sadly hasn't been released in the US yet. Trust us when we say, food (or its ingredients) has never looked so good!

Taking photos of ingredients is a rather mundane task. A bowl of flour looks like a bowl of flour no matter what vessel it's photographed in, so making it look like a super star without something to contain it is even more amazing.

The work that has been put into the photos within the Homemade is Best cookbook from IKEA is simply put — breathtaking. The hours spent placing perfect tablespoons of baking powder without bumping them or having them crumble is mind boggling. They're just so perfect. Who could ever cook with such perfect ingredients after seeing them laid out like this? They're a work of art all on their own! Ok, so you'll probably still want the cookies, but you get the idea!

Check out more photos from the book over at Craftzine where there's everything from Gingerbread men to Pie! The cover of the book is listed above in Swedish, or rather... pretzels!
