food preservation

My favorite restaurant in the world is closing in february. (the biscuit house in columbia, south carolina.) I'd really like to buy their fried chicken biscuit sandwich and preserve it somehow, like a sculpture, just to inspire me. Any ideas about the best way to do this with a piece of food? Ideally, i'd buy it, treat it somehow, and then put it in a glass case.
I realize that food is pretty unstable, so i'm looking for any help with this task. thanks.

  1. What about preserving it in lucite, as is sometimes done with insects & flowers?

    1. Too bad you don't live in Japan. You could go to one of those companies that make plastic sushi and ramen dishes for restaurant displays.

      Or you could just put a sandwich in a case and let it decay. Wouldn't last very long, but would be interesting in a Dorian Gray sort of way, and might get you an NEA grant.
