Little thrills, little trips, little ideas

Little Octopus Sushi

Its been a while since I last did sushi art, I made Minion sushi sometime ago, that was quite challenging as it was my first time, I used my son’s Play Doh to experiment with a mock up first. Play Doh is actually quite a useful tool to use for sushi art practice. Below is the minion
This time I attempted an octopus sushi art using instructions from a Japanese sushi book I bought recently. Its much easier the second time round. Yay! (∩ω∩”)⊃

I used tomato paste to add colour to the rice,  a long round hollow fish cake for the mouth, cheese sticks for the eyes and  and nori to wrap each layer. Accompanying the sushi are chicken karaage, wild carrots, cauliflower & corn sautéed in curry sauce.

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.
