Besides appreciating the beautiful animation, superb storytelling and important messages in Studio Ghibli films written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki, we can't help but drool at the sight of the eye-catching food featured in the film too. 😋

Remember staring at the amazing-looking bacon and eggs cooked on the fire demon Calcifer in Howl's Moving Castle?
Kiki's Delivery Service had many covetable food moments from the chocolate cake and fish pie with a fish design to her pancakes and sausages.
En93kitchen's real life version of these dishes look identical to their film counterparts! 😍
One of the cutest scenes in Ponyo is when Sosuke shares his sandwich with Ponyo, who later offers Sosuke's mother a big stack of sandwiches to "make milk" for the baby! 😂
Look at how Ponyo and Sosuke are looking at their bowls of ramen! We have the same heart eyes for En93kitchen's recreation with the pork slices and marinated egg. 😍
In My Neighbor Totoro, Satsuki takes care of household chores while her mother is in the hospital, including making her younger sister a packed bento lunch! En93kitchen's real life version has all the same ingredients with fluffy white rice, shishamo fish, edamame, sakura denbu and a dried plum.
Tales from Earthsea is a film directed by Gorō Miyazaki, Hayao Miyazaki's son. The combination of cheese and onions in a sandwich is definitely something to try out!
From Up on Poppy Hill is another film directed by Gorō Miyazaki and scripted by Hayao Miyazaki. En93kitchen's recreation of the bento from the film looks just as hearty and delicious!
Last but not least are the big steamed buns, onigiri and simple meals the characters had while working in the bathhouse in Spirited Away.
Besides recreating food from Studio Ghibli films, En93kitchen also posts other cute recipes like animal-shaped cookies on her Instagram account.
