Clay Food Model/ Replicas - Chicken Cutlet Rice

This is another plate of my handmade food model in live / real size : Chicken Cutlet Rice

The most difficult part is to make the rice,  every single piece of rice is made from my hands and join them together. 

I am not a professional food model maker,  I do not own a big kitchen for baking /heating so I do not make mould for my food, every piece of food is knead and shape from my hands. So I cannot repeat the same item twice.

   My handmade food model:   Chicken Cutlet Rice with curry and vegetables

           The fake curry is quite difficult too, to get the fake oil floats on top of the curry I have tried so many times .


               This piece of art work seem quite simple but take up a lot of time to finish , I really love this fake chicken cutlet rice, hope you like it too!

PS: If you like to see the real things please visit the NEX shopping mall level four food mall.

Burgers Lover

I like to make miniature clay food that I like to eat most.  I do not like to eat plain bread alone as I like to eat the fillings inside. Thanks to the one that created sandwiches and burgers, so that I can eat them both together.

            The burger looks nicer with a bit round "head". I used the real sesame  seeds.( you need to do something to the seed first)

           There is a hook on top of the mini clay burger, you can use it as a hand-phone strip or key chain.

             This mini burger is different from the others. It has a mini tomato and the colour of the meat is  
              darker. This is a miniature clay beef burger.

      To make all these miniature and live size burgers, you really need  to have a lot of  patience .

Miniature Beggar's Chicken

"This dish of Beijing origin, Beggar's Chicken also called "jiaohua ji" 叫化鸡 in the Shanghainese dialect, and the chicken is stuffed, wrapped, and roasted in this traditional Eastern Chinese recipe also this dish is very popular with Far Eastern gourmets."

Why it is called Beggar's chicken, that is a story behind, please visit: for more. 

I remember the last time I ate this beggar's chicken was about 30 years ago at a quite famous Chinese restaurant in Japan. I don't really remember what type of ingredients was placed inside the stomach of the chicken, but I still can recall the taste!

I have made this miniature Beggar's Chicken, well, the name doesn't sound nice but the taste is fantastic!

My handmade miniature clay beggar's chicken

                         I just put the things that I still can remember into the stomach of the chicken.

                         There are some chinese herbs and some chestnuts.....I have put some red dates too.

                     The size of this miniature beggar's chicken is shorter  than a toothpick.
