Genius Chef Makes Junk Food Look Like Expensive Five-Star Meals (Photos)

When you think of fine dining, Ring Dings and Cheetos aren't usually the first ingredients that come to mind.

Unless, of course, you are Chef Jacques Lamerde.

This comical chef recently whipped up an Instagram account poking fun at New Nordic plating techniques by featuring a variety of small food portions and showing off some insane plating skills.

However, this chef isn't your average five-star chef who likes to skimp on meal size.

This culinary mastermind also likes to cut down on cooking costs by transforming cheap, processed food into high-class cuisine that looks almost too pretty to eat... or afford, for that matter.

The crappy ingredients include all of the essential unhealthy foods you would find at a convenience store: candy, Pop-Tarts, Hot Pockets, pork rinds and beef jerky.

Chef Jacques Lamerde's hilarious uploads look surprisingly delicious, and all of these foodie photos prove the secret to making a meal look expensive is the presentation.

Take a look at the pictures below to see the chef's five-star convenience store food creations.
