The purpose of fruit and vegetable carving is to make food more attractive, more appetizing, and also easier to eat. Vegetables are first delicately carved, then cooked, and finally arranged attractively to decorate the dish of which they are a part of. Needless to say, guests are greatly pleased to be honored with such a gracious welcome, displaying as it does the good feeling and hospitality of the maker.
Decorating fresh, well formed and colorful fruits and vegetables through artistic carving is by no means difficult; all it takes is concentration.
