Merry Christmas to all of You ! ᒄ₍⁽ˆ⁰ˆ⁾₎ᒃ♪♬
Did you have a great Christmas Eve's dinner? It really is the perfect time for Gourmets. And according to the contributions we recieved this week, it also a favourable period for creativity and neat ideas.Our participants for this 22th Bento Week end have done their best to add a Christmas flavor in our favorite boxes!
Let's take the time to remember all the good things that 2013 brang us and appreciate the work of Rie, Laulotte, Shirley and Aurélie.


Most of you already know Rie. She always make nice cooking and writes interesting articles full of surprising information that you may like. Check it here. She sent us that wonderful Christmas Bento :

There was also a short message coming with : "Cat family is also happy at Christmas! I have roasted turkey with Scandinavian tyttebær sauce, tomatoes, ham flowers, cauliflower salad.". Rie is living in Norway for years and you can feel that influence in her dishes. By the way, aren't these little kitties made from Nori so cute ?
Thank you Rie!


Speaking of Bento specialist, let me introduce you Laulotte's contribution :

Laulotte gives us more explanations about the ingredients used : "Here is my contribution for this Week's event : A christmas three Bento made with Soboro Beef!  Christmas Baubles are from croque-monsieur cheese and cheddar. The three lying on a rice nest is coming with tamagoyaki and a ham flower. In the second box you have some Soboro, vegetarian kimpira and tamagoyaki."

Let's be honest : i was sooo waiting for a christmas bento that would include traditionnal japanese ingredients such as soboro. It was worth it! As usual with Laulotte, she offers us a great bento composition that instantly makes you super hungry! :)


Let's now take a flight to Singapore, home place of our bento specialist Shirley. Influenced by the sunny climat this city-state enjoys, she always cooks us fresh bento with elaborate layouts. Notice how she was able to put so much life in the character : Shirley is indeed a kyarabento (bento character) specialist ! This bento is packed in our traditionnal Take Bako bento box.  


Last but not least, Aurélie sent us not just one but three beautiful bento! You may have thought that with quantity would have come lesser quality but look at these nice pics : each of them are with no doubt great christmas bento!
