Hi there -
Anyone know where we can purchase carved watermelons in SW Ontario/Toronto?
Check these puppies out!
you may be able to special order them from Pi-Tom's on Alexander St. The women who chefs at PiTom's did a full year of fruit carving as part of her chef's training in Thailand -- it's a serious part of the traditional curriculum there.
hmm - you should inquire at the Metropolitan hotel or other hotels that cater to asian clientele - lai Wah heen may have a fruit carver on staff who does this. Alternatively, you can check with George Brown College. They have a course and therefore an instructor who may be able to point you in the right direction.
bumping this up - does anybody know of any private caterers or individuals who do fruit art/carvings/arrangements? looking for something more creative than the offerings at Edible Arrangements to take the place of a birthday cake for someone on a low cholesterol diet.
thanks in advance!
