Chef Ray is the expert vegetable carver who contributed many sculptures to the Burbank Rose Parade Float that I worked on for the 2013 Rose Parade. It was a pleasure to meet him in person at the Orange County Fair and have an opportunity to ask him about his craft.
Chef Ray has several demonstration dvds for sale, and now a brand new app! It's made for iPhone or iPad, and is just under $14. Search the app store for "Chef Garnish Pro" and it will pop right up. It's on my wish list right now!
My favorites at the fair were the little robo-bunny and the big turkey. Which ones jump out at you?
