We are grateful that we have served quite a few events at the Seattle Japanese Garden in the past. And this contribution is definitely the largest in scale and one of the most memorable for everyone in the Kozmo Kitchen team.
Seattle Japanese Garden hosted their 60th Anniversary party on August 12th. In human age, 60th birthday is called Kanreki, a significant milestone in many Asian cultures including Japan. It’s known that the birthday person is dressed in red in the celebration.
To honor the red color, the bento used a red elastic band with very intricate decorative ornament called Mizuhiki, made by the Garden volunteers. To match the special presentation, we decided to make Shokado Style bento. The challenge there was, we were supposed to make 200 of them! Well, we did it, thanks to all the amazing people who helped us.
We are so glad we successfully delivered 200 shokado bentos to the garden in time. And thank you again for everyone involved to make it happen!
