It is most likely a proven scientific fact that tiny versions of big things are delightful. Allow me to introduce you to the world of Re-Ment, a Japanese toy company that specializes in make-your-own miniature kits, whose name often stands in as a catch-all for mini-anything. You can re-ment Hello Kitty. You can re-ment Mickey Mouse(-inspired pancakes). You can re-ment just about anything, but any re-ment involving food is where it's at. For example, watch as these giant hands nimbly assemble a club sandwich complete with a miniature toothpick.
Oh my godddd "petite" parchment paper!
They have even invented a way to let you mix pre-packaged... powders? (Why? Because science.) to create your li'l treat. This one simulates a deep fryer.
These next two change the game by making the ingredients actually edible-- but as candy. (If you're wondering, the gyoza tastes like candy but the ramen tastes like real ramen. In the words of one YouTube commenter, "It tastes nice.")
Mix the soothing quality of cooking shows with (mostly) inedible ingredients, take out the annoying play-by-play, and make it tiny. It's re-ment, and it's beautiful.
