We have been taught never to dawdle with our food. No playing around, pushing the food around on our plate. But as the Japanese artist Gaku proves, Playing with your food is not such a bad thing.
The Japanese artist Gaku has taken the art of food carving to a whole new level. Unleashing his imagination and his wild creativity, he has turned the food carving into an art that mesmerizes you in its beauty.
Gaku, who debuted on the Instagram some 8 months ago practices the traditional art of “Mukimono”. The art became an extremely popular form of food presentation during 16th century in Japan. From there it spread to nearby Thailand. Mukimono flourishes as an important culinary ritual in both the countries even now.
