Learn the Japanese art of Kyaraben or charaben, a style of elaborately arranged bento boxes with food carved to look like different famous cartoon characters, animals, or other objects. These bento boxes started as a way to get children excited about trying different foods, but it's become an art form in Japan.There are even national contests for this food art!

In this online class, I'll help you design your characters and then turn those designs in to a meal.We'll carve fresh, seasonal ingredients into cartoon faces.It can be challenging, but I'll give you tips to make it fun.When your food art is complete, we'll snap photographs to show off your creations to the world.

I will send you the recipe, so you can gather your ingredients in advance

Making cute shaped food using various ingredients.

Sweet rolled omelet is so popular among foreigners. We will make heart-shaped rolled omelet together and egg clape flower as well. Tako Winner is a cute-octopus-looking-cut wiener which need to be cut first for making octopus's feet. When you fry it in the fry pan and season it with ketchup, you will have a cute octopus.

Making a character's face and body.

Making face and body by mixing black sesame and salmon flakes with rice. Then use tweezers, scissors or straw, etc. to make eyes, nose, mouth, etc. by the ingredients as nori (seaweed), cheese, crab and so on.

Packing them in a lunch box.

The process of packing lunch boxes is also an interesting experience for foreigners. Put the character in the middle and stuff the side food around it tightly. It's so cute when finishing the bento making the cheers of "Too cute to eat!"
