Temple of Thai is an online shop for Thai food, Asian kitchenware and fruit carving books, tools and DVDs since 1999. They accept different payment methods and ship worldwide from their location in Los Angeles, California, USA. 

The Special Awards from Temple of Thai:

The Most Amazing Work – A set of carving knives
The Beginner’s Award – “FruitCarving How To” DVD

To determine the special award winners I asked for a help of a special man SamSam Bubbleman!
Sam is a British artist making a Grand Soap Bubble Show in London, UK. Sam performs Bubble Shows at private parties, weddings, kids party, science show and corporate events. He does the show for television, films, videos and celebrities. Samsam Bubbleman has bubbled the Olympics 2012 in London.

I asked Sam a few 'carving' questions. This is what he said:

Q.: Sam, I know that you do Bubble shows at the different events which are weddings, corporate, birthday and kid's parties. Have you seen fruit carving displays at the events? What they were like? 
A.: I don't remember seeing fruit carvings at any events, although I remember reading about a performance made by some musicians who made their instruments out of fruit and vegetables (like a flute carrot!), played a concert, and at the end of the concert, the musicians would cook their vegetables into a soup and all the audience could eat it! I didn't get a chance to see it, but it sounded like a remarkable performance!

Q.: I wonder if there fruit carvings were displayed at the Olympics 2012 events?
A.: The Olympics were everywhere! There were celebrations and events organised all over the country. We were involved in a couple of these - one was to do with the Olympic Torch, and the other was the Opening Ceremony itself. Regrettably I saw no fruit or vegetable carving at either of these.

Q.: Have you ever tried yourself in a fruit and vegetable carving art? Simple food and drink garnishes? Fun with food?
If yes can you share your favorite one?
A.: I think the favourite food garnish I have ever done was impaling pieces of vegetarian hot dog sausages with pieces of spaghetti and then cooking them together for my kids. They love them! ALso I arrange their food on their plate into faces sometimes to help them find fun in their food. I used to like peeling oranges into faces/shapes.
