Finkles Food Art

The artistry that goes with how you package and present food affects how others will receive it. What is pleasant to the eye tends to see the palate. Many artists want their artwork to last forever, but that is not likely to happen when the sculptures are made of delicious food.

Traditional pumpkins used to be carved in the old Jack O Lantern and for many years adorned houses around the world on Halloween. These days there are many different ways of carving not only pumpkins but a variety of food from pumkins to bagels. Food art has now taken on some real artistry. Something that looks good on the eye usually tastes better on the tongue.

A jack-o’-lantern is a carved pumpkin, or turnip, associated chiefly with the holiday of Halloween, and was named after the phenomenon of strange light flickering over peat bogs, called will-o’-the-wisp or jack-o’-lantern. In a jack-o’-lantern, the top is cut off to form a lid, and the inside flesh then scooped out; an image, usually a monstrous face, is carved out of the pumpkin’s rind to expose the hollow interior. To create the lantern effect, a light source is placed within before the lid is closed. This is traditionally a flame or electric candle, though pumpkin lights featuring various colors and flickering effects are also marketed specifically for this purpose. It is common to see jack-o’-lanterns on doorsteps and otherwise used as decorations during Halloween. For more info on the Jack O Lantern carving click here
