Making Food Fun Again: Radishes and Resources

Creating food art is both as easy and as challenging as it sounds at the same time. To carve a radish rose:

  1. Use a paring knife to cut off the top and bottom of the radish.
  2. Cut four one-eight inch slits down each side of the radish. Do not cut all the way through.
  3. Place the radish into a bowl of ice water. This will allow it to open slightly.
  4. Once your radish has fanned out a bit, you can go back with your knife and carefully carve more slits into the base of the radish to make more “petals.” Place it in the ice water after each set of cuts to fan out.
