You may think it’s a scene from home party. But all the dishes are fake! They’re all soooo realistic, right?
They’re fake food we’re preparing for our eBay store. This time, we got roast beef, french fry, Sushi, crepe and so on.
We’re going to check the condition and clean them up carefully. Shintaro mainly handles this task and he carries out the task with a great attention to detail.
Why Japanese people make such a lot of fake food?
Fake food is one of unique Japanese culture. Restaurant owners order them to display, which catch people’s attention and make them enter the shops.
It’s common to see various fake foods displayed in front of restaurants in Japan.
When the menu changes, new fake foods are made and some old ones accomplish their task as display goods. What we got this time is such used fake foods.
These fake foods are all custom-made by Japanese professional craftsmen. They make molds from real foods, then create food parts and assemble it one by one. It’s truly a work of an artisan. I can say it’s art!
