Fruit and vegetable carving is a Thai royal court culinary art that developed during the Ayutthaya period (1350-1767). The aristocratic art reached its peak when the ladies of the court of King Rama II (1809-1824) mastered the skill of creating flowers, fish, baskets and other decorative objects from water melons, yam, cucumbers, onions and other similar common garden produce.
