a whale bento, the whales were turkey. Then he had May’s gone crackers with goat cheese (this is a favorite from when he was very young) tomatoes, steamed green beans, and blueberries
Quinoa onigiri. Onigiri is a Japanese food, traditionally a rice ball filled with pickled ume. From what I understand what I have done here would really upset some Japanese traditionalist who don’t like traditional food (like sushi) to be messed with. Anyway I used Quinoa and a little bit of goat cheese to make it stick together (this would also work with cream cheese) then I filled them with smoked turkey. Simon was not a fan but Talia loved them. In addition he had pistachios, bing cherries (which I pit for him), some sesame crackers, and a yogurt star.
These are BLT skewers, some bunny crackers, mozzarella cheese, and nectarine.
this is a dolphin almond butter and strawberry jam sandwich, surrounded by carrots, freeze dried snap peas, watermelon balls and a shark cut out of fontina cheese.
Myles birthday bento. Normally Myles takes dinner leftovers for lunch but for his birthday I made him a bento. These are la panzanella crackers, peppadews stuffed with goat cheese, beechers signature cheese (this is a local cheese), dolmas, caprese salad, and salami.
normally I don’t let Simon eat white flour, nitrites, or nitrates but he saw me making Myles’s bento and really wanted one too so this was his smaller version. He does not like dolmas but I keep offering them to him becuase I know they are an acquired taste and I am hoping that eventually he will love them the way I do – he already does love salami and any sort of cured meat like that.Portfolio | Contact Me | Book a Session
