Edomae Sushi Food Sample Magnet Kit

Fake food model DIY craft project

US$ 45

If you know one thing about Japanese cuisine, it is sushi, but you need to dig a little deeper to find out that Edomae means sushi made with fish just caught from Tokyo Bay back in the time Tokyo was called Edo (1600-1868). Even today, the word is used by artisanal sushi chefs to mean the real, authentic Edo-style sushi. With the Edomae Sushi Food Sample Magnet Kit, you can become one such chef and create two perfect pieces of "sushi" that can be stuck on your refrigerator door!

The Edomae Sushi Food Sample Magnet Kit is a DIY construction set that allows you to try your hand at a craft with almost a century of history in Japan: that of making food replicas used to lure customers into restaurants. The pieces you make with the kit are one piece of maguro (tuna) and one of salmon. All the "ingredients" are included, from the rice and fish, to the glue and colors, the cup to mix the materials, the varnish to make them more shiny, the magnets themselves, and more. Explore your creativity and make amazingly decorative (and useful) items for your home!
