I’m going to tackle the carrots one in this post, since Chinese New Year is around the corner, and a lot of people like to cut carrots in this manner as flowers are an auspicious symbol, representing richness (花开富贵). This is not just useful for CNY, but all year round too, as I’m sure any dish can be jazzed up with the pretty flowers. This tutorial will work for daikon (radish/white carrot) too.
I love this vegetable cutter! Such a useful tool! Need to check if I could get online..
Hi, v.interesting method. Jamie Oliver taught to use fork to scour all side for cucumber to allow flavours to sip in.design may nt turn out that nice but it does gives a subtle flowery design, It’s also faster as less dangerous for those who are afraid of using knife to cut the sides. :) lovely, I thot those flower like cutter are used for cookies. :)
