Cooks don't only just cook. To be the best in their occupation, they very often turn vegetables into artworks.
A good example of that fact is provided at a food festival in Wuhan, capital of Central China's Hubei province.
During the 2019 Wuhan Food Festival, which kicked off on Monday, a set of Chinese bells carved from wax gourds wowed visitors.
Three skilled local cooks spent a whole week creating the bells using 50 wax gourds.
So realistic were the bells, many visitors wanted to ring them.
While the food festival will last for five months, the wax gourd bells will remain fresh for only a few days.
