The Carving Institute Blog

Occasionally I am alerted to new blogs by readers or by the authors themselves.  This is an example of the latter, and I am happy to inform our readers about this blog.  The best way for me to introduce this blog is for me to quote an excerpt from it:

We teach the ancient Thai art of Kae Sa Luk, or fruit and vegetable carving. The art dates back to the year 1342. It was, in centuries past, considered a great privilege for a Thai woman to learn this art, as it was primarily done at the behest of royalty and other respected people in Thai society. All meals prepared for the revered monarchy were presented in exquisitely prepared decorations carved from fruits and vegetable ranging from papayas and watermelons, to cucumbers and cantaloupes. Those practitioners of the art were highly respected for their talents.

The blog has photos and examples of what they do.  I for one am very impressed with the skill required to perform these feats:

So, check it out!  I’m sure that like me, you’ll learn a thing or two about this culinary art form!
