Chinese New Year Bento



This is another Chinese New Year themed bento which is easier to make than my previous 'Year of the Dragon' bento. One reason is because I cheated and took the dragon's head and tail from yesterday's bento which I put aside just for this purpose ;).

This time the dragon's body is a dragon roll sushi (or caterpillar sushi) which I filled with pork schnitzel, cucumber, crab stick and mayo and topped with avocado slices. The dragon is carrying plenty of peaches on his back, which for the Chinese symbolises longevity. The peaches are actually beet juice tinted quail eggs and the leaves are made out of corn salad. The little boy and girl are also made out of quail eggs topped with mini mozzarella cheese for the heads. The hands show typical Chinese gesture for saying 'Gong Xi Fa cai' or Happy New Year.
