What will I be doing in this class?
Make your own Japanese Bento and turn your packed lunch into a visual delight. In Japan you can buy a Bento everywhere from a station or department store to the special Bento shops. Rice can be molded into cartoon characters, animals, plants or even shaped like buildings, vegetables are cut to look like flowers, and fish rolled into patterns. If you rather like the idea of a beautiful lunch now is the moment to learn how with Alice who teaches ‘picture Bento’. Carve butterflies, or bees to make a sophisticated visual delight to thrill and amaze the office or come and make cartoon characters with your children, guaranteed to turn a fussy eater into a gourmet. Playing with your food is absolutely allowed and was never more fun.
Do I need to know anything?
Bring a child under 14! This workshop will include making healthy vegetable tempura, Japanese potato salad, at least 2 types of sushi and Japanese style pickles. An extensive range of proteins (including Japanese rolled omelette, natto), vegetables and fruits will be available to encourage creativity and to allow you to put personal touches on your final bento.
