Joyful lunching

By Ingrid Fetell Lee


The NYT had a cute piece on bento boxes in this week’s Dining section. Kyaraben, the making of cute lunch boxes for children, rises to the level of art form in Japan. I found these on the Flickr photostream of a mom who makes these weekly for her kids. I think the hungry caterpillar one is irresistible, and the pandas had me at hello. A great example of aesthetics of joy applied to food. I’d be willing to bet that the food in those boxes tastes better than it would if it were just thrown in there too.
