Food Art

Great Book. Awesome food art that everyone try to achieve. Some ingredients are very Asian based. It's a great book to spark creative food carving ideas. Great photographs.

Great Garnishes

This book is a wonderful resource for adding creativity and style to any prepared food or buffet. The full color photos are easy to follow and understand for a step by step guide from simple to ambitious. I'm satisfied with the books diversity of decorating ideas and would recommend it to anyone with a creative flair.

Exceptional vegetable carvings!!

The first few pages are garnishes by Tomi Carey, which are average to OK..but everything after that is superb!! If you have imagination, you can craft masterpieces by following the guidelines/samples in the book. But if you don't have an artistic bone in you, then find another basic beginers book. Excellent buy!

Oh boy!

This book is all about challenge. Carving, carving and carving. For those of you who don't have any talent for this kind of work should skip it. But it also contains a simple decoration but beautiful such as flowers pots. Professional chefs who won awards wrote this book. They are showing incredible techniques and the results are worth to keep as a house decoration! But phiew, talk about myself trying to be at least near those result probably will take zillion of practices. Some of the carvings techniques have to use your own imagination because the guidelines aren't that detail. Example, carving a monkey! This is a hard book. The pages are full with colored photos. Bottom line is that this book is for those who want to be a pro or really love challenges. But for the rest this book is worthy as a collection.

Beautiful and amazing

Most of these garnishes appear to be geared towards formal banquets...they are more like works of art than mere food. Although some explanations are given on how to create these beautiful creations, I doubt that the average person could even come close. Carrots carved into dragons, miniature nature scenes, the list goes on...all gorgeous, but if you're looking for a simple "how to" book, look elsewhere.
