Ken Aversano, a huge Mac fan and a writer for website The Cooks’ Den, and his wife, Diane, teamed up to create a sculpture of Steve Jobs’ face out of a block of ... mozzarella. Why cheese, you may ask? Ken said that the cheese was good for food carving and the mozzarella proved to be a particularly good medium, with its consistency and pliability on being slightly melted. The step-by-step process of the carving is pretty fascinating and is featured on The Cooks’ Den website.

Diane, who specializes in watercolor, has done sculpture in the past and carved the cheese with a knife, using food-coloring for the shading and adding pepper to give the illusion of hair. As you might guess, this isn’t the first time she’s carved with food; she’s been carving for a while and previously carved Star Wars character Jar Jar Binks out of a jicama.


Ken’s and Diane’s cheese sculpture has received quite a bit of online attention, but they have not yet gotten a reaction from the Apple man himself. Perhaps when Jobs finds out, he’ll be just as amazed that he has his very own personalized iPad Thai.
