Animal Fat Sculptures The Cutting Edge In Culinary Arts

CINCINNATI (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Ice sculptures are passe: Dominic Palazzolo’s Cincinnati-based Culinart provides carved, original “tallow” sculptures – basically, animal fat sculptures – to the most discerning dining parties and events.

Unlike ice sculptures, Palazzolo says the blubbery culinary carvings can last a year with his special deodorized formula – and that he’s seen carvings of everything, from a mini Statue of Liberty to a model of the U.S.S. Cole made out of his mold.

Such visionary vittles are hits on cruise ships and among the most elite private soirees, where the tallow is dyed to look like cheddar cheese and chocolate and can fool unsuspecting guests – until bitten into.

Palazzolo says even though the tallow is technically edible, it does cause “anal seepage,” flatulence and related unpleasantries.
