Remember when we were told as kids to never play with our food? Well, Japanese artist Gaku doesn’t seem to think its a bad thing at all! He has made it into an art form and carves intricate patterns on everyday fruits and veggies. It’s in the traditional art form called mukimono which literally means “stripped product”. It became a popular form of food presentation during the 16th century in Japan, and spread to Thailand shortly after. It is now an important culinary ritual in both countries.
