Make a Japanese Character Bento Box!

Have you seen Japanese kids’s lunch (bento) boxes? So cute- almost too cute to eat! Japanese lunch boxes are so cool they’re more like art than food. They also tend to draw inspiration from Japanese anime & manga characters making them super cute. Now you can learn to make your own cartoon character lunch box with Washo Cook!

WASHO COOK: a cookery school whose name combines the Japanese word for Japanese cooking- Washoku (和食)& cooking with several locations around Tokyo.

Cartoon Character Bento Box

Learn to make a Japanese “bento” lunch box with characters from Japanese popular culture such as Kumamon or Totoro. Watch Japanese fried egg “tamagoyaki” transform into little love hearts & flowers. Mini sausages transform into tiny octupus babies – & deft additions of seaweed & cheese to sesame-flavoured rice! Hey presto- a magical lunch box!

During the lesson you’ll be introduced to Japanese foods such as “chikuwa” -a deep-fried fish-seaweed sausage & find a new use for boiled brocolli. Learners will also be supplied with the necessary tools such as tweezers & scissors and even straws!

Within 2 hours you’ll learn from the pros how to make cute faces from seaweed, salmon flakes, cheese & crabmeat. You’ll need to use all your self-control not to nibble as you create!

By the time you’re finished you may not want to eat your own creation but you’ll be hungry..and your bento box looks so inviting 😉
