Y’all, one of our Texas Farm Bureau members in Colorado County is doing something so cool, and I had to share it with our Texas Table Top readers. Chef Ryan Kulhanek creates amazing pieces of art from food. While at The Culinary Academy of Austin, Chef Ryan stumbled upon a talent–and a love–for fruit carving. Now he’s turned that talent into a popular business, Live Food Creations.

I visited Chef Ryan at his shop down in Weimar a few weeks ago and got to see him in action. Click on the thumbnails below to see some photos I took while I was there. You also can read more about Chef Ryan and Live Food Creations in Texas Farm Bureau’s latest Texas Neighbors publication.
