This was one of the first bentos I did a while back when i started preparing Tz lunch boxes last year. The idea was to create the red riding hood bento but i could not find the right ingredients to depict the red cape which was tasty enough to make Tz eat his lunch box. So i selected to use Inari (Japanese tofu skin commonly used in sushi). I experimented with 2 Inari skins, one for the hood and the other for the dress. Its like an origami experiment, trying out the different ways of folding the skin. I did tear one or two skins before the final folds. But well at least Tz liked the blondie with a shopping bag.
Girl : Inari for the hood and dress, sushi for face and filling for the dress, cheese and nori for hand and bag, pasta for hair, crab stick for scarf.
Trees and Background : Italian parsley, gingered minced pork and edamame.
