The Cook is a c.1570 oil on panel painting by Giuseppe Arcimboldo, now in the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm. It is a still life of roasted meats - when the painting is turned upside-down, these form a human face via pareidolia. The painter also produced The Fruit Basket and The Gardener, using a similar effect.[citation needed]

The attribution to Arcimboldo is disputed.

The painting reversed and the right way up.
