Then there were Bentos...

Random: I want this Toast Messenger. You write/ draw anything you want and it will appear on the toast.

This piece of fabulous machinery got me thinking how much i love inventive cuisine. I love creativity and food, combine both and congratulations you’ve reached perfection. Of course the Japanese already got that down to a science. I mean Bento boxes are fabulous, they are lunch boxes, much like the type of box you take your lunch to school in; of course people have taken it to the point that it becomes art.

Esta fabulosa maquinaria me puso a pensar en cuanto adoro la comida inventiva. Adoro la creatividad y la comida, combinas ambas y felicidades has alcanzado la perfección. Claro ya los japoneses saben de esto. Las llamadas cajas Bento son fabulosas, son loncheras, similar al tipo de caja en la cual llevas tu comida al colegio y claro hay gente que ya ha convertido esto en arte.

Note: "Bento" is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal common in
Japanese cuisine. Bento can be very elaborately arranged. (Wikipedia)

Nota: "Bento" Es una ración de comida sencilla para llevar, bastante común en la cocina japonesa. Por lo general la comida se adorna de diversas formas (Wikipedia)

The food is often decorated to look like people, cartoon characters, animals, etc.

Comúnmente la comida es decorada para parecerse a gente, caricaturas, animales, etc.

There's this awesome book called "Face Food" by Christopher D Salyers, and the title is pretty much self explanatory, it's food made into characters. It's incredible, and amazing of how much effort people put into making these.

Hay un libro fantástico llamado "Face Food" by Christopher D Salyers
y trata basicamente de comida convertida en caricaturas.
Es increíble la dedicación que gente pone en hacer esto.
