Lavazza, the Italian coffee company, has unveiled its 2014 calendar featuring its ‘Magnificent Seven’ chefs.

The series of photos, by German photographer Martin Schoeller, has an air of fantasy to it.

A mermaid appears on a fish counter with Antonino Cannavacciuolo, a chef from southern Italy, at her tail.

Ferran Adrià, the Spanish chef soon to open the elBulli Foundation, is caught in a bubble swirling with gastronomic ideas.
