Where did you gain the skill to craft such detailed and tiny images using food? Tell us a bit about your techniques.
It’s not so much a technical skill as it is being resourceful and putting “the pieces” together. It’s about finding the right ingredient to mimic color and the right utensil to manipulate that ingredient.

No, there really is not a set “food art time.” I just decide what I want to eat and my mind will just wander off the plate. Often times I find myself in a situation where there are ingredients I want to play with but I don’t because I’m really hungry or I don’t want to be rude at restaurants.
