Food Art – Artistic License in the Kitchen

Food carving and creative food art is something that requires a great deal of patience to end up with just the perfect result. 

I love seeing what creative people can do with food to make it into an art form.

Food is soft and this makes it the perfect medium for carving into life-like objects.

There is some disagreement about when food and vegetable carving started, but many think that it was first practiced in Thailand over 700 years ago.

No matter the origin, there is no disputing that it is artistic and creative!
