Hi,
Does anybody know of a website that gives instructions on how to cut veggies into fun shapes like roses and palm trees and so on. I work at a library in Germany and we do not have any books like that and I have a patron who needs some help. Thanks a bunch

Garnish a spring dinner-party plate with this clever carrot-and-pepper palm tree and baby squashes.

Carrot-and-Pepper Palm Tree

Materials:

fat carrots
knife
green bell peppers
toothpick
baby squash
peanut butter

Steps:

Slice off the big end of a fat carrot.

Cut a green bell pepper to resemble the top of a palm tree.

Score the carrot to look like a palm tree trunk.

Secure the bell pepper top onto the carrot with a toothpick.

Place on a plate and surround with baby squashes.
* Note: If the carrot is having difficulty standing up, place a dab of peanut butter under the trunk.
