Fun Link Friday: Vegetable Carving Art

Photo from Colossal.

Five years ago we featured an article on banana carving art, and let’s just say we never get tired of a new and fun food idea coming out of Japan. This week we have an article from Colossal highlighting the Japanese artist Gaku, who has taken mukimono 剥き物 (the art of decorative garnishing) to the next level with complex geometric patterns in his vegetable carvings. As Colossal points out, one of the most incredible parts of this art is that it must be done in a matter of minutes before oxidation sets in and begins to alter the color and integrity of some of your vegetables! Visit the original article  or Gaku’s instagram to see more incredible work!
