The art of fruit and vegetable carving started its roots in the age of the Chinese Tang Dynasty (AD 618-906) and Sung Dynasty (AD 960-1279). This exquisite craft has been slowly developed and refined over the years in China.  This class is for anyone interested in learning the basic fundamentals of fruit and vegetable carving!

In this workshop, Chef Jimmy will cover an introduction on knives and carving tools, basic skill practice, single flowers, and Thai-style melon carving for beginners.

$75 per class + $15 for carving equipment. Space is limited, so register today!
