WTF: Tiny Food Tutorials Are a (Really Cute) Thing
If you were all, “OMG, it’s so tiny,” when you saw that video of a hamster eating a wee pizza and an itty-bitty hamster-sized burrito, well, just you wait. The Internet has blessed us with more mini food that’s totally edible. It’s enough cuteness to make you wish that it was still okay to play with dollhouses.
This miniature food tutorial craze started in Japan. In the videos, regular-sized humans make teeny tiny meals with teeny tiny utensils, tools and food. The stove runs with the heat from a candle, and the results actually look really delicious.
With a single candle, you can apparently boil water, make scrambled eggs (of the tiny, quail variety) and even deep fry shrimp. Even things that are difficult to make human-sized are being whipped up with utensils the size of toothpicks. We’re talking sushi, crepes and spaghetti bolognese.
Whoever had the idea to bring a shrink ray to the world of DIY is our hero for the week. We’ll just be over here, binge watching these tiny tutorials while upping the recipes to a more filling scale.
