My New Pop-Up Book

I got this beautiful woodcut pop-up book made by Alison Yates at Pretty Penny’s craft exposition this weekend.  This combined with a recent trip to Addison Endpapers is really tempting me to start making books.

New from Peko-Peko: Green Pea and Black Cod Bento

Yummmmmmm!

peko peko new bento

As you all know I’m huge fans of Peko-Peko.  I’ve enjoyed both of their earlier bento creations and can’t wait to try their most recent concoction–especially since it includes fava beans, a new favorite since my recent trip to Ad Hoc.  I’m thinking of serving these for family dinner this Friday night.

PS: I also love the design of the flyers and wrapping (see pics of “Early Spring Bento” here) who is behind this genius?

Follow up: Peko Peko Early Spring Bento

Peko Peko’s Early Spring Bento arrived today in this unbelievably soothing printed paper and red string.  Perfect since it was an early birthday gift from me to Rimpletide!  I love the Golden Gate graphic+little cars!

The pork cutlet and rolled omelette were amazing, but my Oprah a-ha moment was the crab and rice.  Ah-ma-zing.  Steamed Dungeness crab, Tamaki Gold rice, hand-made ginger pickle (ginger, sugar, umeboshi vinegar), sancho, and salt.  The hand-made ginger pickle really took things to the next level.  

We sat, ate, and smiled.  

Thanks Peko Peko!
