Amazing Vegetable Details in Vietnam
One of my first impressions of the people of Vietnam was that they were mostly very hard working people who often make little money yet remain cheerful and friendly. They seem happy to take on tasks that Westerners would typically scoff at. Talent, ingenuity and a little love were evident in many of the details I saw while visiting their country.
The edible garnishes were simply awesome! Keep in mind that each and every dish served at this restaurant in Hoi An was accompanied by one of these miniature works of art.
Look closely at the detail in this sculpture made from carrots.
Pastry artists in Paris have turned their talents to creating beautiful and edible delights for the eye and taste buds, that take a bite out of your wallet. In Vietnam, these are garnishes that accompany the entree.
The food itself was as awesome as the presentation. I just couldn’t get over the time and effort put into garnishing each of these plates.
The next time you have guests over for dinner, why not try your hand at sculpting a carrot into a glorious bird or a sexy shrimp lounging on a bed of coral? I’m sure your friends would be as impressed as I was in Vietnam.
