Charles Pheonix is a speaker, performer, cook, and all-around exemplar of 1950s Americana. From his famous Test Kitchen, he's delivered to the world extraordinary works of food art, such as a cereal cake, a meat Nativity set, and a Santa Claus meatloaf.
Most recently, he's devised a hot summer treat and party activity that is perfect for your Fourth of July get-together. It's called Uncle Watermelon. Think of it as a snowman that you can make in the summer. Offer your guests a watermelon, toothpicks, and an assortment of fruits and vegetables. Put them all together like a Mr. Potato head.
