The Amazing Art of Food Carving

Food Carving 06We’ve been on several cruises that have had some very talented artists. They can take everyday objects and turn them into works of art. I’m talking about the amazing creations that food carvers design.

Carving out these works of art from pieces of food, usually fruits and vegetables, takes more than just the ability to make the proper cuts in the food. They also have to have an imagination to know which pieces of food are the perfect choice for what they want to make.

Often you’ll see these creations sitting above the buffet when you’re walking through the buffet line. On a couple of our cruises, they had a demonstration by the food carver to show passengers just how it’s done.

Here are two carvers showing passengers how they do it…
