Have you heard of the crazy new hobbie called Konapun????

I just received an email newsletter from Bon Appetit the other day and they had an article and a video about this strange new craze that has hit Japan (or some people in Japan) that involves 'cooking' fake tiny play food with tiny play utensils and displaying it (for a short time... it doesn't last forever apparently).  

Konapun is apparently a very sophisticated version of play doh made from sodium alginate... You have to watch the video it is so bizarre.  There are even chemicals that are added that give the appearance of oil bubbling when you 'fry' your fake hamburger patties.

Have a look here on the Bon Appetit blog.

Perhaps to save space!? Japan is a very crowded place!
