Food carving and garnishing is a great way to notch-up your dishes and give then a nice, appealing, and professional look.
Food carving is the art of carving vegetables or fruits to form beautiful objects and shapes. There are different techniques for carving food, some elaborative and artistic, while others simple and easy yet beautiful. No matter the technique, the final result is an attractive dish!
Although the exact origin of food carving is disputed, all acknowledge that it came from East Asia and has been practiced in Japan, China and Thailand for hundreds, if not thousands, of years.
Nowadays, food carving is gaining worldwide appreciations especially as beautifully carved vegetables and fruits are travelling through the viral net across countries and continents.
Today, I am happy to introduce you to my friend Selena, a talented artist and fruit carving blogger from Russia. We thought it would be a great idea to do a guest post on each others blog as a way to introduce our reader's to a whole new world of art and flavors.
At her blog Food Carving Arrangements and Food Garnishes Selena shares her work in a simple and clear way. In today’s video, "Culinary Art Every Day", she demonstrates some simple techniques for garnishing daily meals. For some strange reason the video is not showing if you are using Firefox, so use another browser to watch!
Hope you found the video and the food art in it, enjoyable and easy to do. I know I did, and soon you will see a live demonstration in the presentation of some of my upcoming dishes
And, don’t forget to support Selena’s art by visiting her blog where you will be amazed at her beautiful work and will have the chance to see some other tutorials in food carving.
