Google has their new art project up. I don't know that anyone has  
mentioned that there are works with food up!
It promises to be a really good site if they keep adding to it. You  
can zoom in very very close for details!!! Use the plus and minus  
signs in the upper left of the screen. Click and drag to observe  
different areas of a painting.
For now the following museums are included in the project:

Alte Nationalgalerie, Berlin - Germany
Freer Gallery of Art, Smithsonian, Washington DC - USA
The Frick Collection, NYC - USA
Gemäldegalerie, Berlin - Germany
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC - USA
MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art, NYC - USA
Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid - Spain
Museo Thyssen - Bornemisza, Madrid - Spain
Museum Kampa, Prague - Czech Republic
National Gallery, London - UK
Palace of Versailles - France
Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam - The Netherlands
The State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg - Russia
State Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow - Russia
Tate Britain, London - UK
Uffizi Gallery, Florence - Italy
Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam - The Netherlands

I have to admit that I am intrigued by looking at baskets of bread in  
some of the Dutch works myself. Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam - The  
Netherlands has:
  Feast of St Nicholas; Still Life with Turkey Pie; Still Life with a  
Silver Jug;

Worth a browse on a now rainy afternoon
