So excited to share my first video with everyone! The lovely folks at The Weekend Edition got in touch and asked if I was interested in doing a collaboration with them – and you bet I was! The idea they were running with was ‘desk lunches that don’t suck’. As a maker of lunch boxes which certainly don’t appear to suck, we figured was a perfect fit.
And so here we are! Check out the video to see me (well, my hands) make one of our most popular lunchboxes ever! That is, the summer salad and chocolate rose pistachio fig combo from a couple of months back. It’s sort of a remix, really, as I’ve been experimenting with different styles of tofu and other interesting bits and bobs which weren’t in the original lunchbox.
Making a video sure was different to shooting a normal lunch! The most interesting thing was the lighting/time factor. Maybe I spent a little too long getting those dappled afternoon rays just right… by the time I had realised it was near sunset! I raced to get everything into that box before the natural light faded and only just made it. Still, I had a ball doing it, and am thinking I should definitely start making some more videos! Let me know if you guys enjoy them, or what I should make next; hit up email@example.com if you have any suggestions, or recipes you’d like me to try out on film. Love to help out!
Finally, another big thank you to The Weekend Edition for having me. If you check out the article on their website, I wrote out my top five quick recipes, as well as talking a bit about my lunches and what we’re all about 😀
- Marinated tofu, spinach, rocket, broccolini, sugar snap peas, baby corn, red cabbage, avocado, pepitas, red chilli, spring onion
- Dark chocolate, fig, rose petals, pistachios, coconut yoghurt, muesli, mint leaves, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, nectarines, edible flowers
If you love the double-compartment look, try the updated Lunchbots Bento Duo. It’s a newer, more compact version of the one we used here!
