Kimchi Party: Wildwood Foods Bento Box Dinner


Don’t you just love a good party? Not one of those gatherings where everyone gets together and sips wine and eats cheesecake (although, standard parties do have their place)…but one of those parties where you show up, and it’s just pure surprise. Where the meal isn’t just sit down and use a fork. It’s stand up, or cross your legs on the floor, or lay on a picnic blanket, and let’s do something different.

That’s a good party. A little bit of surprise. A lot of good food. I’ve got you covered in both arenas with this simple (adorable) (delicious) (hysterically fun) idea for a Bento Box dinner.

It starts with Wildwood protein-packed SprouTofu and ends with everyone pretty much smiling their faces off.

The plan for this party was to pull together the flavors I learned to love when we were hosting Korean exchange students, then turn them into a no-prep celebration that was as fun to eat as it was to put together.

I gathered my kids and a few friends around a dinner table full of homemade, no-bake Kimchi SprouTofu (recipe below, yo!), rice, inari, edamame, fortune cookies (and anything else I wanted to grab from the Asian aisle at my local grocer), then let everyone have at it. Fingers and chopsticks flying, we dug into our digs like hungry little pandas.

This is a fun party to serve on sectioned plates. I grabbed a few in the summer aisle at a big box retailer a few weeks back. It’s fun picking the exact-right-thing from the a la carte selection to put on each part of your plate.

We finished the evening off with a fortune cookie reading, inviting everyone to take the classic “in the bathtub” phrase once they’d read their fortune. Simple but splendid. We were laughing before we knew it, and in no hurry to go anywhere. So, the grown-ups sipped sake while the kids ran outside. Now, that’s a good party.
