Ah Mondays, no better day for procrastination. I sat down at my computer with every intention of doing spreadsheet stuff but found myself opening up 5 new browser tabs to accommodate my latest obsession -- Anime food!
There is something quite enchanting about illustrated food, and when it comes to life in animation it is even more mesmerising. The food is unashamedly idealised, the fluffiness of the rice, the glistening icing, oozing sauces all basking in a steamy glow... it's enough to make you drool all over your keyboard. And don't even get me started on the cocktail sausages cut to look like an octopus! I could do a whole post dedicated to anthromorphic kawaii food. I am clearly not alone in my infatuation with fantasy food, there are countless blogs and websites dedicated to Anime foodporn: This blog documents what your favourite Anime characters are eating week by week: https://itadakimasuanime.wordpress.com/ Want to learn how to cook thise delicious dishes your favourite characters are eating? look no further than Bistro Animeshi [http://blog.animeshi.net/] and this Anime recipe tumblr: http://animerecipes.tumblr.com/ Although I warn you, be prepared for your finished dish to look nothing like the picture.
And if you would like to feed your habit with an Anime dedicated to food I would recommend Shirokuma Cafe しろくまカフェ a manga series by Aloha Higa. It revolves around the a café run by a polar bear, it's adorable and will make you very hungry!! Now if you'll excuse me I have to go rummage in the fridge...
