Chick in Spring

Leave a comment

www.ongling.comLittle chick in pasta nest, using tips I learnt from watching professional chefs twirl the pasta with a fork, i used chopsticks and tucked a sausage chick inside. Added sukura flowers cut-outs, greens, orange and yellow colours to depict springtime. Its a simple composition of food ingredients, would like to use fancier ingredients like cilantro, dill or pink ginger for flowers but Tz will definitely cry ……Eewww ≈ω≈….. What a headache Ò⇓Ó….. Creativity Constrain…. Tz’s food choice.

Hi, I have been making bento lunch boxes for my toddler son for a year. Its a challenge everyday to think of new bento ideas to excite him. The creations are endless and took a lot of trial and errors. But most importantly, his bento lunches must deliver 3 key goals: exciting presentation (eye appeal), exciting tastes (texture & ingredients) and exciting adventures (dare to try; food play). Recently, I started making my husband lunch bentos too for work after he got envious of seeing beautiful bentos prepared by Japanese wives on Japanese TV network. I am learning and picking up skills from many talented bento makers everyday to improve myself. Here are some of my creations I would like to share with you. Apart from bentos, there some travel stories and little things i enjoy doing related to food and culture in this blog. So enjoy and share your thoughts with me.
