Cartography just got a much tastier look. Artists Caitlin Levin and Henry Hargreaves created a series of maps made entirely out of the foods for which the countries are known.

“Exploring new places through the food you eat is often a portal to the cultural complexities of that place,” Hargreaves told TIME in an email. “While we know that tomatoes originally came from the Andes in South America, Italy has become the tomato king. These maps show how food has traveled the globe – transforming and becoming a part of the cultural identity of that place.
