Fun with Food: mock lobster

Last April I wrote about a book called Face Food, the art of making bento boxes (Japanese lunch boxes).

I recently stumbled across a Flickr gallery of a bento artist named Sakurako Kitsa and found the same bento I had used to illustrate the blog post. What made this fun was that now I could see how she had constructed the bento (which she calls spa bento). Kitsa has installed little hyperlinks in the photos so that when you mouse over parts of the bento box, a little caption box pops up to explain what was used in the construction.

This will all become clear if you check out her gallery. I was especially fond of this lobster, which is made of plum tomatoes.
