Unbelievably Cute Lunches: by Samantha Lee

Yes, that’s real food, you will notice it if you look closely. Healthy, colorful, I bet it’s yummy as well. This is called ‘Bento’ (portioned lunch), and this specific technique it called “oekakiben” or “picture bento”. It’s about arranging food to look like people, animals, buildings and monuments, or items such as flowers and plants. Those are lunches that Samantha Lee prepares for her two daughters. We’re kind of jealous.
