Takoyaki bowl

Posted on


I first had Takoyaki (small balls of dashi flavoured batter usually with Octopus in the centre) when my husband and I were working on a volunteer project in Japan.
They are now one of my favourite foods and something that I've tried to make for a while. After a fair few failed attempts at making them, it seems that I've
got it. Hazaar!

After this culinary success I decided that I needed a dedicated Takoyaki bowl. I ordered some ceramic pens (I prefer the Pebeo 150 Porcelain markers), picked up a
plain white bowl and sketched one of my favourite creatures, the Kraken onto it. After finishing the design, all I had to do to make it food and dishwasher safe was
to bake it for 30 minutes until the paint set.
