I was at my local super market recently and ran across a store employee who was on break. He was sitting by the coffee counter inside carving a gorgeous flower out of a watermelon. We started talking and it turns out he used to carve fruit like this for a catering company downtown. He actually trained in Thailand, which is where fruit and vegetable carving originated, and is a centuries old art form that Thailand is known for.
Imagine having a fruit or vegetable sculpture like this at your next event as a center piece for your buffet or cocktail table. What a grand statement that would make!
