Green Eggs and Ham edible lunch

I love edible book art–especially when it’s beautiful, or based on a children’s book. So this “Green Eggs and Ham” Bento box lunch created by Sakurako Kitsa is a feast for my eyes. (Not to mention that Green Eggs and Ham is one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books.)

What’s a Bento box lunch? I wondered that, too. A Bento lunch is basically a packed lunch–only the lunches are often decorative and visually appealing, and contain multiple food items. They can be packed in any container, but it’s common (especially in Japan, but the trend has come here as well) to pack the meal in a Bento box–a box with individual compartments, and sometimes multiple tiers for grains, pasta, or side dishes.

Bento lunches are a way to make food look appealing and fun–for children and for grown ups. I haven’t tried this myself, but I like looking at the photos.
