Chef carves a watermelon into a basket. It's great for parties and catering.
Cut one side of the melon. Let the middle of the outer covering of that part intact with the rest of the fruit.
Cut the uppermost open part of the entire fruit's skin.
Let the holder intact with the fruit.
Cut and scoop out the pulp of the fruit. Slice the pulp into small pieces.
Put them back into the melon basket.
Scrape out the skin of melon and give shapes of your choice on the outer covering.
Fill with other fruits and nuts.

Hey Chefgiovanni, this is amazing. I wonder how you got the idea of using watermelon's outer skin as a basket. It is lovely, you have carved so beautifully on it that it becomes precious. Keep posting such interesting and lovely videos for us :))
