Cucumber Gondola is a Cucumber Carving in the shape of a Gondola. Vegetable carving is an interesting hobby for children and adults.
Materials Required for making Cucumber Gondola:
A small curved Cucumber
Vegetable cutting/carving knifes
Cut a slice off the bottom side (the curve facing up) of the Cucumber to make the cucumber stand as shown in Picture1.
Mark to divide the Cucumber into three parts as shown in Picture2.
Cut along the lines leaving the middle portion intact as shown in Picture3.
Carve designs on top of the Gondola. Scoop out the inside of the Cucumber as shown in Picture4.
Cut notches with a straight knife around the edges as shown in Picture5.
Keep two toothpicks as oars, tiny toys can be placed inside to pose as a boatman. You can use this boat to serve Chutneys and Dips.

Beautiful, too good as its so simple to make , very creative you are
Thanks Shoba, I attended a vegetable carving class held in Mysore when I was a teenager, which taught me the basics and now when I see carving in functions, hotels or magazines, I try it out and present it here.
Kudos to your creativity!! What can be more suitable than a natural dip keeper that can also be eaten? 🙂
There is so much info on your website, that I get to spend only a little time on. I guess I’ll be reading as time permits. Just awesome!
Thank you Nikhila.
