Held a Character obento class by request last week. Since my students could not eat meat, I couldn't make any octopus sausages or any other animal shaped sausages or cut outs using ham. Instead, I made vegetable and cheese cut outs and flowers using thin fried eggs. Main dish for this class was teriyaki salmon.
I also taught them how to make a teddy bear shaped onigiri and Totoro shaped onigiri. I'm very happy that they seemed to enjoy the class.
I'm Miyuki and I teach Japanese Home cooking at my home in Tokyo.
