Iron Chef Peanut Art

by in Food Network Magazine, Shows, May 31st, 2014


For the June issue of Food Network Magazine, artist Steve Casino turned ordinary peanuts into intricate Iron Chef caricatures. The “painter of nuts,” who is also a professional toy inventor, says the most difficult part of the process isn’t painting on such a small canvas, it’s finding the perfect nut — he’ll go through thousands of peanuts before finding the right shape.
