[Sca-cooks] Food from the Silk Road

I saw this article some time ago when I went to see the Silk Road exhibit when it was in Santa Ana, Calif.  Yes it is very inspiring.
Stamp, maybe.  Mold, definitely.  When Hroar finishs what he is working on for Potrero War [he has been inspired to make Roman mortars and Roman spouted strainers] then I will ask him about making a mold like this.  Then between you and me, we can make  "fruit dumplings in the shape of a plum blossom" that are not only beautiful, but also totally edible.  Yeah us!

The photo that interests me here is the "fruit dumpling in the shape of 
a plum blossom"  which looks as if it was formed in a mold.  We could 
make a stamp like that out of clay, say what Huette?  More ceramics!
