Daantje Bons - Banana Split

"Sweet aesthetics, rebellion and humour served with a powerful message: my work is just like a Banana Split. She is warm, cold, sweet and - above all - mighty rich. As messy as your face may get, you must dig in and consume every scent, colour and flavour, all in one go."


  • 4 bananas, split down the middle
  • 4 scoops of vanilla ice-cream
  • chocolate sauce or syrup
  • marshmallow syrup
  • raspberry sauce or syrup
  • whipped cream
  • chopped nuts (optional)
  • Maraschino cherries

Place 2 bananas on each side of the plate. Add 2 scoops of vanilla ice-cream in the middle and a large swirl of whipped cream along each scoop. Pour the chocolate sauce over the ice-cream and arrange the rest of the ingredients on the plate as you wish. Place a cherry on top of the swirl of whipped cream you have added on top of the ice-cream. Drip some raspberry sauce and marshmallow syrup over the other two swirls.  


My Feeder is a Photographer
Back in 2018, Melkweg Expo invited photographers to give their favorite recipe a new face. We exhibited their photographic visualization of their favorite food alongside the recipe in the exhibition My Feeder is a Photographer. Because everyone is apparently baking and cooking their way through the coronavirus pandemic (it’s the sweetest self-isolating therapy), we will share these juicy photographic recipes with you. Check your plate and lick your fingers!
