Kikona’s Seasonal Bento Decoration

I love bentos (lunch boxes) that are colorfully packed full of a main meal, side dishes and vegetables!
Let me introduce the Japanese technique of seasonal bento for the enjoyment of in season ingredients year-round.

Spring Bento(Lunch Box)

Spring Bento(Lunch Box)

Here I used the pink ingredients of Japanese kamaboko (steamed fish cake) and tarako (salted pollack/cod roe) to symbolize cherry blossoms!

Summer Bento(Lunch Box)

Summer Bento(Lunch Box)

In this spaghetti bento, the center of the sunflower is created using meat sauce, and the flower petals are made by slicing up a thin omelet.

Autumn Bento(Lunch Box)

Autumn Bento(Lunch Box)

For this season of beautiful moons, I created a rabbit and moon from one boiled egg.

Winter Bento(Lunch Box)

For this season I made a snowman out of mashed potatoes on a background filled with Christmas images.
