Paete's townsfolk re-invented themselves from wood carvers to carving butter, vegetables, chocolate, and ice years ago due to the dearth of wood to support the industry, fueled by the growing demand for kitchen artists and chefs by hotels and restaurants here and abroad.

It is by this reason there's a Paetenian in (almost) every hotel and restaurant in the Philippines working as kitchen artists. (wonder why paetenians have yet to discover food styling as a profession very close to vegetable carving)

Every 24th of July, a day before the town fiesta in honor of St. James the Apostle, Paetenians (or Paeteņos) hold the annual Culinary Arts Festival: a competition of vegetable carving, ice and bar tending at the town plaza.

Vegetable Carving Competition at 10am July 24, Paete town plaza

Ice Carving Competition at 1pm

Tools of the trade: saws, ice clamps, pang-ukit (chisels) of various kinds: paet (straight-edged chisel from where Paete town got its name), landay (slightly arched chisel), lukob (arched or U-shaped chisel), tres pico (V-shaped chisel). (Yes, the word paet is actually a kind of chisel and not the generic word for it. Tutubi knows how to hold, use and sharpen one but is not adept at it)
The winners of the contest were awarded trophies and training/employment opportunities in some Manila hotels.

If ever any of the readers is looking for an ice carver for weddings and other events, just drop a comment and Tutubi may be able to find someone to render the service for you.
