Mosaic Bento

IMG_1464One of the trend that hit town around mid last year in Japan was Mosiac Bento.

Through geometrical neat arrangements of the ingredients, the result was a highly attractive elegant sushi bento.

I fell in love with the mosaic bento design. So so gorgeous and  not to mention, easy to achieve too. Just prepare a variety of ingredients that you like, colorful will be best, and cut them into squares and arrange them in the box.

For me, I obviously prefer them cute and kawaii. ;P haha so I made quite a no of mosaic bento designs.DC37BB62-F494-4668-8F5C-DB4FF933A0BB

The Sanrio one above remains one of my favourites.

When October month was around the corner, I made a Halloween inspired Mosaic Bento.

Knowing that some of you may not really consume rice in your usual diet, I made a sandwich mosaic bento too.
During my trip to Bangkok (Thailand) to teach cooking, I discovered a quaint little tea store that sold really lovely homemade spreads with flavours like matcha, houjicha and even pickled sakura.
They tasted amazing and also had lovely colors. So I used them for this animal theme sandwich mosaic bento.

What was even more amazing was that my Mosaic bento creations caught the eye of the producers of Bento Expo – a special bento programme by NHK World  again.
So they came over to film me and my bento making for the programme – Special Episode.
If you missed it, don’t worry. You can catch the episodes again at https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/tv/bento/
The filming took place around the December period and the first episode was slated for airing during Christmas period, so I made a Christmas theme mosaic bento. 966B5C37-6BD6-4EC1-B31D-786EE59E6535
I also did a twist on the regular square/rectangular mosaic bento and made another version in a round tingkat bento. EEFD7E85-A2B9-44CC-89B5-71C3AA505C74
