Food Carving or Kitchen Games

Sunday, 11 October 2009

food carvingEvery girl in the childhood even tried to make her dish of art for holiday event under supervision of her mom or grandmother. The ideas are so abundant that sometimes you feel inspired to do everything you know in cooking. Or example, make a rose from the boiled beet-root or stars from carrot or a flower from the onion. There are lots of fascinating ideas. Those who feel themselves creative designers to make something unusual like funny faces or puppies or something outrageous only face the criticism followed by words that «We never play with food» or «Do not waste food!».

Perhaps, some advanced parents take the kids to special groups of wood carving or cross fancy-works with the aim to teach their children think correctly and use only simple and affordable things for their art works.

And this is not reasonable at all! Carving (is the individual artistic work so well adopted in cooking and well practiced in the world.

As many various things we have to do in our routine life, food carving originated thousands year ago in the exotic East where people appreciated not only nutrient agents but also the appearance to enjoy. Food carving is the integral part of cookery in China, Japan and Thailand and the carving art is the pride of local masters. Confidential techniques are different from region to region; the composition ideas and the ways to keep the carved things fresh for longer time are inherited and special tools for carving cost a lot. Examining the carved masterpieces, it is easy to define the place where the master lives since the plot and the performance techniques reveal the entire nation with its typical cultural and historical details. Thus, the Chinese masters tend to carve compositions of battle or historical scenes, dragon images, mythical animals, old times characters, heroes and congratulation signs. The Japanese technique is similar to the Chinese and food carving is different for the sizes and color gamut solutions. Customarily the Chinese and Japanese masters apply special clichés and knives.

However, the Thai food carving is the one that attracts more admirers for the tender petals, precise and elegant carving, color ornaments, water flows of incredible blend and it is hardly believable that this miracle is made from the radish, melon, cabbage leaves or onions. Thai masters use the entire assortment of knives, cutters and special nozzles. The compositions created by the Thai cutters are really elegant, negligible and fin. Could you ever imagine that this beauty is possible to eat later on?

Food carving smoothly moved to creative America from the East, and later it spread over the world. Along with the oriental trend, the food carving is the customary thing at banquettes, functions and events in the world.

The American food carving is different from the oriental food carving in the artistic performance, the same as the American wrestler differs from the Shaolin monk. Though Americans are unique that they are capable to adopt and «digest» new knowledge and skills, and pass from themselves and develop absolutely new kind of human skills. Moreover, the Americans are easy to adopt this technique since they have carving experience for Halloween.  American food carving is the witty solution to feeding problems and games of adults in the kitchen. Somehow cynic, sometimes blunt and shut out of style, too simple (if not down-home) craft things made from scratch (when rolls, sausages, biscuits are used) using as part of the composition of kitchen utensils, furniture, books and others, they are remembered. You must have seen lots of crazy images in the Internet like a funny roll carved from the bread or an apple caught at the finger. And this is typical works of American food carving.

Elements of food carving are used in pedagogic study as well. The artistic carving on fruits and vegetables is the simplest and relatively cheap method to teach children do something with the hands with the aim to develop the fine motor skills and grow tolerance and patience.  

There are hundreds of contests, festivals and sessions of food carvers, from professionals to amateurs, and many reputed restaurants include in the job description of the cook the skill of food carving. Every year thousands of people of various age, race, and nationalities take a cutter and use it to make a masterpiece from the fruit or vegetable. If marble is not available for carving, why not apple?
