Hi Nita, I received my DVDs Monday and on Tuesday began carving.I made the radish bouquet, a watermelon flower and some turnip flowers. I am quite happy with the results. Just on a side note I have been cooking professionally for over 30 years and have always wanted to learn this skill. i should be through the 11 week course by the end of November and am looking forward to learning advanced carving. Thanks, Michael Mattia.”

“I made lotus onions, and a few other things and made a bouquet for our church Thanksgiving dinner Sunday night. I got raves. I also made a bouquet out of green olives, black olives and peppers. It also got raves. I am enjoying this very much.
Thank you Nita.
