(MENAFN Press) International chefs are competing to create ice and fruit sculpture during their participation in the 8th Al Qasba Food Festival, being organized by Al Qasba, the premier tourist, leisure and family destination in the emirate of Sharjah, and running until 12th of April



The festival saw an exciting competition in the Ice Sculpture activity with lots of entries from the participating chefs in the festival. They competed in showing their artistic skills in turning the large pieces of ice into creative artworks. Some of the competitors carved flying hawks, inspired by the Emirati environment, while others carved fish and sea creature, inspired by the rich bounty of marine life in the UAE



In Vegetable and Fruit Carving Competition, orange and green pumpkins were distributed to chefs who created smiling children's faces of the visiting children to the festival. Other chefs created hawks from the orange pumpkins.

Fruit carving is one art of the Asian cuisine, especially in the Thai cuisine. It was originated from China, and was a culinary tradition in Thailand in the 14th century. Thai culinary professionals are skillful in fruit and vegetable carvings as well as in maintaining the lifetime of these sculptures by using a mix of water and lemon.
