Okay, Someone Just Made Combat Rations into Atas Michelin-Style Plating

MREs, or Meals-Ready-to-Eat, are the packaged food given out to soldiers on the fields. Known as combat rations to us Singaporeans (especially those who served NS), these meals have gained a reputation for being quite unpalatable.

Even though MINDEF says the food all underwent extensive research and taste testing. You’re not fooling anyone here!

(although some sources say the combat rations actually taste decent once heated up, but who got time to heat food outfield, you tell me?)

Anyway, chef Chuck George, videographer Jimmy Pham, and photographer Henry Hargreaves teamed up for a series of re-plated MREs, that look like they could be served in a Michelin-starred restaurant.

Have a look below.

That’s the combat ration for the US army. Now…lo and behold.

That’s from France, and most likely from the “accessory pack”. Check how how cool they can be.

Chef George’s father served in the army, and frequently brought back MREs for his son to try. That was what inspired Chef George to come up with this quite fantastic idea.

MREs don’t actually look too bad, when given the Michelin star treatment. Unfortunately, in their exploration of MREs from around the world, Singapore was left out. 

Who’s going for ICT soon? We’re waiting for masterpiece.
