Bento Weekend 21 Results : Pumpkin Bento
Expect to see all kind of Pumpkins of course, but also spicy meat, japanese dishes and some great desserts.
Let's start with Natalie's Pumpkin Bento she sent us from Switzerland. It is a nice mix of salty dishes and sweet desserts,and comes with some useful information :
Let's have a look now at what Sophie cooked us, packed in the funny Nokorimono bento box (one of my favourite ^^).
- Caramelized Pork : Thanks to Amélie from ("A vos baguettes") ^^
- Kayaku gohan : A variation on one of the Rie recipe in which i added leek, Champignon de Paris, a pumpkin and a boiled egg ."
And finally the amazing pumpkin bento from Isabelle, packed in our green Kinoko Bento box. Don't you like these cute flags from Japan and France ? (ノ^∇^) Isabelle cooked us some potimarron (red kuri squash).
Cupcake is potimarron and meat. Side dishes are lamb's lettuce with yellow and red cherry tomatoes (to add some colors). Dessert are lychees and a small colored Babybel shaped with cutters.
I found the recipe for potimarron and meat on Ochikeron youtube channel.
I like those videos. It is in English and the name of the ingredients are clearly displayed. They are easy to understand and presented in a very Kawaii way. You can find Japanese bento but also some western food packed in a japanese wood. A Must-See!
