I’ve been posting on Flickr bento groups for 3 years, and I opened my blog 2 years ago when I realised there was absolutely nothing on bento in French. I came accross bento and cute cooking while researching on how to make sushi. I’d been packing my lunches for like, ever, so I was seduced immediately.
This Totoro bento was actually a surprise for a bento-friend. I dont usually do charaben, but this friend is a Totoro freak, and with other French bento addicts we decided to post a Totoro-themed bento on our blogs on the same day, for him. I had lots of fun doing this and making this bento.
-on the bottom, shredded iceberg lettuce (to make the bento less hearty, I’m not a big eater)
-iceberg lettuce leaves. They’re perpect because of their large leaves)
-blanched brocoli for trees
-chibi totoro is a hard-boied quail egg, eyes of cheese and nori
-totoro is made of sushi rice mixed with black sesame paste, regular white cheese (cant remember now what kind) and nori
