Stop Playing With Your Food

Kae-Sa-Luk, the unique Thai art of carving fruit and vegetables into intricate flower shapes that please both the eye and the palate, was begun in Thailand in 1346. No other country practices this same decorative treatment of foods. Only a few people are still trained in this ancient court art, even in modern Thailand. Pam Maneeratana is one of the best of these.”

Below are three examples of Pam’s work:

    Thai fruit carving is becoming more & more popular in the west. It’s great to watch people learn and their faces light up when they create something so pretty from something so ordinary.
