Gallery: HOW TO: Make a Teeny Tiny Edible High Line Centerpiece for Tha...

STEP 4:

Chop up some your chives and broccoli and start “planting” them into your mashed potato landscape where the trees, shrubs and trees of the High Line are. Feel free to get creative here – you can certainly use other veggies if you want. You can even “plant” grass by using tweezers and placing bits of dried rosemary one by one into the mashed potatoes. Or – if you’re a normal person with a life – just sprinkle some wasabi-flavored sesame seeds.

MATERIALS:

- 5 plastic sushi takeout containers - 12 pairs of wooden chopsticks - black paint - black paper - a fork - foil - glue - a knife - A spatula or spoon - FOOD! You can get pretty creative here and substitute whatever you like but here is what we used:

- mashed potatoes - chinese chives - yams or carrots - stuffing - cranberry paste or quince paste - baby corn - purple corn or whatever corn you have at your local greenmarket - pickled red peppers - soymeat (in an effort to make this recipe vegetarian) - broccoli - dried rosemary - agar agar + blue food coloring (for the water feature) - mexican corncakes or cornbread - enoki mushrooms (for the “people”) - wasabi flavored sesame seeds - black sesame seeds
