Studio Ghibli Celebrates Delicious Anime Food

As far as animated food goes, Studio Ghibli’s looks delicious. Recently opened at the Ghibli Museum, and running untill May 2018, there is an official exhibition depicting recreations of the studio’s eats.

The exhibit is called “Delicious! Animating Memorable Meals” in English (in Japanese, it’s “Taberu wo Kaku” or 食べるを描く, which is “Drawing Eating”).

The exhibit doesn’t only feature food recreations, but shows how the meals were designed as well as how characters eat. From the museum’s official site:

Food that is still warm, that looks soft and tender, with the wonderful flavor showing on the faces of those eating them – these scenes of meals are appealing and charming. No dialogue is needed to convey deliciousness and happiness.

This exhibition introduces how food can be drawn to appear even more delectable than the real thing, creating scenes of joy.


Kataku recently ran an article about this with a lot of great images.
