There were reports of peanut butter having salmonella before. I watched them on the television, I heard them on the radio, I even heard them from grocery stores and even inside our home. It wasn’t a big deal for me though I am not a fan of peanut butters. It just struck me to post this article due to, one of our own products made here from the Philippines contained salmonella. Becareful on what you eat.


Would You Eat These?

I was surfing the net and I found some very interesting photo’s from flickr. This is what you call art (or playing with food). These masterpieces takes maybe hours or minutes (?) to create. But would you eat them if you ever created one? or try to preserve it if ever you can. Stomach’s will be the judge of that. I was thinking what the taste was if I ate one.

Bento – This are cuisine’s from Japan which can be home made or is made and readily available in convient stores, department stores, train stations,etc. It looks like a lunch box type, which consist of rice, meat, fish or vagetables. There are a lot of different kinds of bentos, it depends on how it is made. The pictures I have posted are Kyaraben type.

Kyaraben or Charaben shortened from character bento. These bento type is created to look like people, animals, plants, cartoon characters, or anything the artist wishes to create.
