Ice Carving

Bullwinkle Ice Carving

In Garde Manger class, we produce all of the food and displays for Sunday brunch at the Main Street Grill. We spend 4 days preparing foods such as canapes, salads, terrines, pates, omlet station, a roast for carving and some hot foods. We also do presentation items such as aspic platters (decorative work on platters using a very thick geletin) used for serving the terrines and pates. We also do an ice carving every friday afternoon. This week we decided to carve a moose, Bullwinkle specifically. Rocky was one of the aspic platter designs.
