Fruit Carving for Professionals

quality that fits world class events

Why fruit carving at Krua Thai:

We have worked with many top-flight clients such as Hilton Group and chef Albert Roux in this field and know exactly what you need to enhance your skills.

This course is guaranteed to provide the professional caterer with sufficient instruction to present traditional Thai cuisine in a professional manner. It is specially designed for the student with limited time to spare.

Our clients include the Hilton International Presidents, the world-famous chef Albert Roux OBE, Crossbasket Castle and Borders Catering College.

High-quality and exotic food presentation is a wonderful tradition of Thailand and the Krua Thai Cookery School aims to impart these superb skills to all its students. The skills learnt will be displayed best at buffets and special banquets. The course is most suited to professional caterers who are looking for that ‘little extra something’ in their food presentation. It is great for your long-term investment and well worth the money spent. 

Course information

We will turn you from impossible to possible. We have 4 levels to complete all the designs we use for our top flight clients. When working in western countries efficiency and accuracy of the task being carried out is essential to reduce overheads. In Thailand, where labour is much cheaper, several carvers are often hired for a single event. Cost overheads seldom allow more than 1 carver here in UK and Europe. To compensate for this differential, it is necessary to choose the most effective and distinctive designs for display that can the produced in the shortest possible time frame. We will show you how to choose the most suitable designs and how to carve them in the shortest possible time but most importantly finesse and exquisite results by western standards and western taste. We guarantee that each student will master the technique of fruit carving within a 1-day course and be capable of presenting Thai dishes to a standard they did not think possible. They will take all their work home.
