For Manami Sasaki, the making of toast is the time to slow down and be creative in the midst of these chaotic times. Every morning, she sits down and uses bread as her canvas to create quite unusual but incredible food art. Her “Stay Home” series, which she started during the quarantine period, features different themes, varying from famous artworks such as Ikko Tanaka’s “The 200th Anniversary Of Sharaku” to zen Japanese rock gardens.

The artist takes inspiration from Japanese traditions so it’s natural that some of the artworks show traditional Japanese rock gardens, anime characters, Japanese paintings, and even Japanese dances. For her creations, she uses a variety of ingredients that mostly can be found in any Japanese kitchen—seaweed, tomatoes, sour cream, nuts, and fish. Well, except only the edible gold leaf.

“No one, in particular, referred to the toast art. I was put on telecommuting because of Corona. I started doing toast art to get up early in the morning instead of slacking off. It’s a delicious breakfast. I create toast art on my favorite themes,” the artist told Bored Panda about how her idea was born.

Ingredients: sliced bread, sour cream, dried bonito flakes, squid, sprinkle with salmon, cheese, purple cabbage, shrimp, whitebait, and blue seaweed.
