[Video] How to cut a flower pattern on a mushroom

Filed Under: Videos

I’m so excited because this is my first “cooking video”, well more of a cooking preparation video. They say a picture speaks a thousand words, but when it comes to cooking, I think nothing can tell a story  better than a video. This is a short video showing you how to cut a flower pattern on a mushroom for decorative purpose. You may have seen such “groomed” mushrooms in steamboat and sukiyaki, and they are really pretty to look at. This is a request from reader Lorraine.

I’m totally clueless when it comes to videos, so even though this clip is less than 1 minute, we took the whole weekend to produce it. There is a lot of room for improvement. Please give me your honest feedback, and tell me how I can improve in future. If you have any suggestions on what kind of videos you would like to see, feel free to let me know via comments. More instructional videos to come I hope, so stay tuned :)

  1. Love the video. Clear and easy to understand.. And the music is a great touch! Great job! Thanks!

  2. Wow, I din know you like Nujabes! =D

    I’m so gonna try this technique. It looks so easy. Hope I can get it right. =)

    • that’s the soundtrack off Samurai Champloo, I loved the entire soundtrack and his music. do you know he was killed in an accident last year? really sad news :~(

    • Yes, he passed away. I like his style of music. Always go to youtube to listen to his tracks. Oh, Samurai Champloo… I think I read that comic before.

    • the anime is better than the manga, because of the soundtrack and hip-hop style… try to catch it ;)

  3. Ahhh so excited to click on this and see wiffy in action! :D So you got a video cam now? What a great idea to demonstrate how a flower pattern is done on a mushroom. I’d love to see more demonstrations like this.

    Can’t think of any improvements to make on this video…great job!

    • Nope, it’s the video feature that comes with my micro-four thirds camera :D Thank you for your words of encouragement to a total video noob! :)

  4. As they say, we feast with our eyes before we feed with our mouths… so it’s nice to have some foods “decorated” before we dine on them. Nice one, this! :)

  5. I am impressed….

  6. oooo congrats on your clear and succinct video! You are doing a great job in making cooking accessible to all.

  7. Love it n thought it was well made and even better than those done by eHow!!! Thanks a gazillion n it so happens I am trying out the taucheo veg recipe for dinner late n will try to embellish w the mushroom later!

    The instructions -short and terse, flashed across the screen is way better than voiceovers!

    Keep em coming

    Me. No.
