‘Charaben’, short for Character Bento, is bento (lunchbox) where the food is arranged and decorated to look like popular characters, animals, and etc. It was born from Japanese mothers’ desire to get their picky children to enjoy and eat their lunch.
Now it is a boom and you can find lots of recipe books and tools to make charaben easy. Many Japanese people are posting pictures of their great works on SNS. As a result, charaben became popular in the world too!
In this lesson, we will make Totoro from Ghibli while you learn decoration tips (heart-shaped omelet, sausage flower & apple rabbit) and all you need to know about bento making!
We will make at least three side dishes and miso soup from scratch.
There are so many tools and accessories available for you to use in bento making. We can also show you the recommended tools and accessories that you can purchase at 100 yen shop!
* You can get free refills on Japanese sake, beer, wine and soft drink during the lesson :)* Menus are subject to change based on the availability of items in the market.
