(Duration: 2 hours)
Modern Japanese bento lunchboxes have become an art form, known as ‘Chara-ben’. In this unique experience you’ll learn how to make beautiful and fun character bento that you can take home and enjoy…if you can resist eating them during the class!
We’ll be using Japanese rice moulds to make super cute animals and popular characters. Alice will show you how to decorate these using only healthy and natural flavours and ingredients. You’ll learn how to prepare and make seasonal inspired dishes such as healthy vegetable tempura or Japanese potato salad and at least 2 types of sushi.
An extensive range of proteins, fruit and vegetables will be available to encourage creativity and allow you to put personal touches on your final bento. There’ll also be a range of authentic Japanese bento accessories to choose from to take away with you.
Alice can accommodate vegetarian or vegan diet types (please inform us in advance). This class is suitable for children aged 5+. For private sessions please let us know any favourite theme or character so that the workshop can be tailored accordingly.
