Vegetable and Fruit Carving Five W's

Vegetable and Fruit Carving Five W's


The Five Ws, Five Ws and one H, or the Six Ws are questions whose answers are considered basic in information-gathering. Today I will be applying the same to this wonderful Art of Vegetable and Fruit Carving. Let us see how each of these interrogative words can be applied in trying to get the most out of this simple yet interesting Frequently Asked Questions - (FAQ) session. 

I am going to make it more interesting by twisting the order of the Five Ws and One H in a way that it makes it more fun and easy for the reader to follow and understand. In this post I will only highlight the application of each of the Ws and the H to the subject of Vegetable and Fruit Carving and then we shall take up each of the specific interrogative sessions in a separate post by itself so we can deal with it in detail. 

Hopefully when we have dealt with all the Five Ws and one H about Vegetable and Fruit Carving we will have had a very clear panoramic view and understanding of this great Thai Art. 

We all know the Five Ws and one H as follows:

Who ?
What ?
When ?
Where ?
Why ?
 
and

How ?

Let us see how we can apply these to our subject of Vegetable and Fruit Carving and get the best of this Informative and Interrogative fun activity! For this I will be changing the order of the words so as to suit our subject. 

As mentioned earlier in this post I will only give a brief idea of what we will be expecting in the respective posts, and then my subsequent Posts will have the same headings so it makes it easy for the reader to relate with this post. It is possible that the same interrogative word can be viewed in different contexts which I will highlight in the respective posts. 

We shall start with the obvious first question....

What - is Vegetable and Fruit Carving? ....In this question we will deal first briefly and then in detail about what exactly is this Art of Vegetable and Fruit carving and its use in both commercial and domestic circles. It will also deal with the when it can be used and where all this Art can be used. 

When - When of Vegetable Fruit Carving will deal with when and where this Art has originated, and the influences of each country on the styles of Vegetable and Fruit Carvings.

Why - This question is basically covered in the What, but we shall deal in detail why this Art has taken the front seat and why it still commands the respect and liking of millions of Artists both Culinary as well as the  customer who this appeals visually. 

Who - this section will deal with who, where and how this art can be used. In a later post I will be also dedicating to the Artists all over the world a literal Who's Who of the famous Artists all over the world.  

Where and How - I have combined these interrogative words as they compliment each other in the subject of How to Carve Vegetables and Fruits and Where to learn this Art of Vegetable and Fruit Carving. This will exhaustively deal with Training Institutes, Professional Artists and Academy who offer training on this great Art of Carving. I will try to give as many links or details where and How this Art can be learnt all over the world.

The whole purpose of this small fun loving yet detailed activity is to enjoy this wonderful Art of Vegetable and Fruit Carving in the same way the Artists who create these work of Art, and equally in the same manner as it makes the presentation of this Art so pleasing. 

A lot of imagination, creativity, pre-planned activity and sheer dedication goes into creation of these work of Art as I always refer this to. The Outcome is sheer Magic and if we all try and understand the Five Ws and one H of this Art it won't be long before one of you or many more will turn out to not only be an avid follower but an Artist itself of this Art. 

As always the comments, suggestions, and views of my valued readers and patrons is invaluable and will be highly appreciated, so shoot off your ideas and comments and make this activity more fun loving and interactive!
