Welcome back to another Nerdie Foodie! This week was the kick-off for the 3rd Annual Ghibli Fest. That’s right, Studio Ghibli. If you’re not that into anime or you are curious about Anime and don’t know where to start, might we suggest the feature films from Studio Ghibli? Here are just a few foodie recreations from a few of those films to give you a taste. Let’s go!

Kiki’s Delivery Service (1989)

Ponyo (2008)
