"" Food and Art have been close to man's heart from the beginning of civilization. Kae Sa Lak - The ancient Fruit and Vegetable carving art from Thailand - brings Food and Art together to form an even more endearing combination. Mr. Umasankar Dhanapal is a distinguished chef who has brought home glory with his success at the World Culinary Olympics IKA 2012.I believe that he is best suited to propagate the Art in India and wish him all the success !!

"Umasankar Dhanapal is a very good carver who showed his work at the prestigious World Culinary Olympics IKA 2012 in Germany and he won a bronze award.His work is varied, he doesn't focus on just one style of carving. He carves flowers as well as melons, pumpkins, plastic motives and 3D motives. He learned from books and he attended courses in Thailand and our studio. I was impressed by his great enthusiasm and that he is willing to sacrifice a lot for his goal. Many participants went through our courses however Umasankar belongs between those who we are very happy to remember and he became our friend. "

"I have known Uma since his college days and his passion for art in general and food sculpture in particular. BRAND CAI is very proud of his achievement at the IKA Culinary Olympics. I would like to share that Uma's skills are not restricted only to Vegetable and Fruit Carving but has a very good command over Edible Sculpture covering areas such as Aspic, Butter, Ice, Tallow etc. He is today a very big inspiration to a lot of young and budding culinary artists all over India.
