Introducing Amorette (Sakurako Kitsa)

Introducing Amorette (Sakurako Kitsa)


Amorette“Amorette Dye”, also known as Sakurako Kitsa on Flickr, is a stunningly talented bento food artist whose work has appeared in bento book Face Food, the upcoming book 500 Bento Lunches: 500 Unique Recipes for Brilliant Bento, and media such as the Greek Marie Claire and Hong Kong’s Weekend Weekly. She’s an acclaimed American master of oekakiben, original food art compositions related to kyaraben (“character bentos” that look like cartoon characters). Have a look at her Flickr photostream for a glimpse of her artistic masterworks.

My own focus is more on making simple, speedy bento lunches, but I’m delighted to tell you that Amorette will be guest authoring a series on decorative food art bentos here on Lunch in a Box while I’m traveling over the next week. Amorette will be sharing with us some original techniques that she’s been developing, as well as tips for more complicated and artistic special-occasion lunches. I hope you’ll enjoy the change of pace. Please join me in welcoming Amorette to Lunch in a Box! ~Biggie
