Event Report: Bento Making with Lee Kum Kee Ketchup

I was invited by the kind folks from Lee Kum Kee for a very interesting event one week day evening. As it was really near my office, I thought I'll head down and have a go -- at bento making! As you guys would know, I normally don't do "the kitchen thing" very well. I try to stay out of it unless I am standing by my boiling pot of noodles for 3 minutes.

In any case, I thought bento making might come in useful one day if I am stuck in a home with a Tupperware box, some really colourful and delicious food, and nothing to do.

We were being introduced to the world of Lee Kum Kee products first, where I found out that Lee Kum Kee is really a LKK brand. It has been around for 125 years! Wow, that's really a heritage brand. They 

Let's get started! My bento making team - melissa from melicacy.com and Darren.

We had to fry mini meat patties with star and heart shaped carrots.

Our lovely neighbours - Celes from celestialdelish.com and Karen from superfinefeline.com

And here is my bento box! It is made with buns stuffed with ketchup egg mayo, a banana with my blog URL etched on it, and a mini box of LKK ketchup-ed spaghetti (tastes good!) topped with the meat patty carrot. And a side dish of salad.

It was an overall fun experience! I've also tried the tomato ketchup on its own and found it very different from the normal ones. It is sweeter and has that 'real' tomato taste (instead of processed artificial taste). Do buy and try it if you spot it in stores and you will know exactly what I'm talking about.
