The way to a person's heart is through his stomach. That certainly can be proven by Michael Zee's Instagram feed where he showcases symmetrical breakfast plates he makes for himself and his boyfriend, Mark van Beek.
By chance one morning, Michael Zee noticed the breakfast plates he prepared (an omlette, avocado, salami and fruit juice) were symmetrical. In a move as simple as snapping a photo and posting said photo online, a social media star was born. Yet, as simple as the images appear, there is still quite a bit of prep work involved compared to his very first food photo post. Michael states that if a food item takes more than 30 minutes to make then he prepares it the night before. Otherwise, he wakes up earlier than normal to prepare the food and ensure a picture perfect meal is made. He posts the photo by 7:30am and they are out the door for the day by 8am. To keep things interesting, Michael researches global breakfast ideas to change up his menu.
More than just a devoted foodie and photographer, Michael continues this photo series because it is "...a declaration of love...both to breakfast and to Mark."
