Vegetable carving competition in Leipzig took place on September 5, 2011. It is the first ever European carving competition. This sculpture of an eagle has been created using a medium many conventional artists may not have considered – fruit and vegetables. Using a mixture of fruits, this beautiful and edible bird was created by Russian vegetable carver Vadim Nefedjev. Participants showed their skills in sculpture during yesterday’s round of competition at the first ever European carving competition in Leipzig in eastern Germany. The competition is taking place during the “Gaeste” trade fair for the restaurant, hotel and catering business running until September 6, 2011. Within four hours, competitors have to carve in front of the jury’s eyes a piece from melons, papayas, stem cabbage, cucumbers, radish, carrots and Chinese cabbage.
