THAI FRUIT & VEGETABLE CARVING
Thai fruit and vegetable skills are great to add to your resume. Executive chefs and restaurant owners appreciate what beauty a specially carved creation adds to a meal. Customers appreciate the fact that you specially prepared a little something extra just for them.
Fruit carving is an ART, not a science. The more you practice, the more you will learn, and the more proficient you will become. Novices typically begin with the easiest to carve fruits and vegetables, like onions, long chilies, radishes, carrots, and tomatoes. As you become more proficient with the tools-of-the-trade and carving techniques, you will progress to mangos, cantaloupes, and melons.
Those taking our Professional Chef and Thai Culinary Chef courses receive 1-2 days of training in this art. But you don’t have to take these chef courses to enroll in our fruit carving classes.
Our professional level carving classes are designed for both beginners and professionals. Taught by our Master fruit carvers—Kru Ya and Kru Alex. Come learn from them how to master the techniques and become as good as you can be. Here’s just a sampling of what you can learn to do. All it takes is great instructors, some talent, and lots of practice!
Just let us know your current skills level, and we will design the course for you. Alternatively, tell us know what you want to learn, and we will teach you accordingly.
