Neat stuff Kuan, you do a lot of food decor/carving?

Nah I don't do anything of that sort.  Just thought I'd do it for fun. smile.gif We used to have to do it a lot when I worked in stuffy hotel restaurants.  You know the kind of place where you had to make vegetables look like something else in order to serve them.  wink.gif

Not everything is served chopped and diced and ground to a paste, Mike.

 

Although fluted mushrooms are a little retro, there are times where they make sense. For example, the original Hot Brows were garnished with mushrooms, not tomatoes. And given the time and place or their origination, we can safely assume the 'shrooms were fluted. So I do them that way for that dish. Much more visually appealing.

 

I'm just not as good at it as Kuan.

I've never fluted a mushroom. But Kuan makes it LOOK easy. i think he's deceiving me about that though.

I used to do that. I was the mushroom fluter. How about doing that 500 times? I held my knife differently though. Chef taught me and it took forever, but even to this day, it comes back.

I held knife different to. I used caps on top Filet Mignons
