Jimmy Zhang rocked our foodie world with his knife expertise at the Eclectix culinary carving demonstration on Sunday. The crowd was duly impressed as a carrot became flowers that fell from his fingers like magic. Not to mention the little bird, a pair of intricate butterflies, a white radish rose with their beet juice tinted petal tips. From a cantaloupe grew a multi-layered lily on it’s own pad. For the grand finale, a flowering watermelon, with translucent layers from dark green, white/lime to deep red. Resounding applause ( as well as harmonious ooooh’s and aaahhh’s) followed Jimmy’s every creation and a good, fun & learning time was had by all!
