Here's How To Eat Everything You've Ever Wanted From A Miyazaki Film

Warning: tears of happiness may ensue.

1. Ramen from Ponyo.

2. Steamed red buns from Spirited Away.

3. Sponge cake from Spirited Away.

4. Herring pot pie from Kiki's Delivery Service.

5. Bento boxes from My Neighbor Totoro.

~Magical food sensations~.

6. Rice porridge (okayu) from Kiki's Delivery Service.

This okayu is also seen in Princess Mononoke.

You can customize this to your liking, but scallions are a must. Recipe here.

7. Winter vegetable nimono (stew) from Laputa: Castle in the Sky.

This calls for a variety of earthy things, mainly carrots, potatoes, mushrooms, onions, and bamboo (if you'd like). See how to make this here.

8. Fried horse mackerel or "Aji-furai" from From Up on the Poppy Hill.

9. Breakfast mishmash from From Up on the Poppy Hill.

10. Breakfast #2 from Kiki's Delivery Service.

11. Salmon in béchamel sauce from Porco Rosso.

12. Giant soup dumplings (Ba-wan) from Spirited Away.

Ba-wan are a type of Taiwanese snack that consists of a gelatinous shell usually filled with meat, mushrooms, and bamboo shoots. Be sure to serve them with extra sauce. Recipe here.

13. Bacon and eggs from Howl's Moving Castle.

CORRECTION: Oops! The fried treats from #8 are actually fried horse mackerels and the soup dumplings from #12 are Ba-wan Taiwanese snacks. An earlier version of this post had the wrong recipes.
