Watermelon Food Carving – So creative and Visual

In Thailand, watermelon food carving is considered a traditional and highly cultivated art.

There are different opinions as to when fruit and vegetable carving originated but the most popular theory  is that it started in Thailand in the 14th century.

There are many different types of watermelon with varying flesh and rind colors.  Their flesh is soft and pliable. This makes them perfect subjects for watermelon carving.

If you like the taste of fresh watermelons, you’ll love my new recipe – raspberry watermelon lemonade. It is a hydrating drink that the whole family will enjoy.
