Many would agree that food is about a lot more than just how it tastes. It's about presentation, combination, and creativity. While produce art (carving and arranging fruits and vegetables) might seem a little stodgy, it proves to be anything but. These sculptures can be lifelike as well as imaginative, but always unexpected. Artists who work with these delicate and time-sensitive materials are finding themselves in great demand, as the art form has been gaining new followers, enticed by their sheer creativity and wow-factor.
The work of Jimmy Zhang caught Tweety's eye recently. Not only does Jimmy use lots of lively yellow, but his creations are so well done, they make it look easy! These little yellow beet butterflies look like they could alight on you, if they decide to move from that delicious watermelon. Also, the lemon version of Tweety would make a great prop to distract evil Sylvester so that our dear Tweety can run free!
Here's a drink Tweety would like to sip on while musing on the art:
4 cups half-frozen watermelon cut into 1-inch chunks
(seeds and all)
1/4 cup vodka
1/4 cup lime sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth—makes 5 drinks!
