From oven-browned chicken to chocolate candies, Houston artist Henri Gadbois is dishing out some culinary delights with zero calories.  

One look at Houston artist and Bayou Bend docent Henry Gadbois’ culinary treats makes locals want to dig in. He has shelves full of different goods including oysters, pecan pie and even a boar’s head! Many wonder how he is able to have so much food that will never expire. We visited his display at Bayou Bend and his workshop to learn more about his works.

See more of his faux food creations at his website.
