We recently discovered a cool illustration that deserves to be shared with as many people as possible, especially foodies. The illustration made by artist Jade Robin details “The Wellington Family” of dough-wrapped food.
Robin got the inspiration for the illustration after reading a tweet by Twitter user Stacie Rosenzweig that featured an intriguing question.
“Is a Beef Wellington a fancy Hot Pocket, or is a Hot Pocket a downscale Beef Wellington?” wondered Rosenzweig.
Robin decided to solve the dilemma once and for all by illustrating the entire Wellington Family. She made cool illustrations for each dish and then added a funny description.
It started with Beef Wellington, which was presented as the grandfather of the family and described as refined and nuanced.
Hot Pocket is the “hipster of the Wellington family,” according to Robin. This popular snack “loves new tech” and is “often seen to be ‘mixing things up’ with cheese.”
Next is Pigs in a Blanket, which are your cool uncle or aunt, who “typically shows up for parties and holidays, but otherwise keeps to themselves.” The Corn Dog, on the other hand, is considered the “black sheep” of the Wellington family.
Finally, Pop Tarts are the vegetarians of the family. They are “frequently in a hurry most mornings” and sometimes “too busy to be warmed up.”
Robin’s illustration is so on point that it should be a definitive family tree of the dough-wrapped food. What do you think?
