STEP 5:

Cut some of the soymeat into strips for the "train tracks". We should clarify that the soymeat we used is the kind that is dark brown on the outside and tan on the inside. Slice the brown outer layer off first and cut it into thin strips for the metal railroad beams and then cut the tan inside into planks for the wooden part of the tracks. Place those gently onto your mashed potato landscape first and then layer the dark brown strips on top.

MATERIALS:

- 5 plastic sushi takeout containers - 12 pairs of wooden chopsticks - black paint - black paper - a fork - foil - glue - a knife - A spatula or spoon - FOOD! You can get pretty creative here and substitute whatever you like but here is what we used:

- mashed potatoes - chinese chives - yams or carrots - stuffing - cranberry paste or quince paste - baby corn - purple corn or whatever corn you have at your local greenmarket - pickled red peppers - soymeat (in an effort to make this recipe vegetarian) - broccoli - dried rosemary - agar agar + blue food coloring (for the water feature) - mexican corncakes or cornbread - enoki mushrooms (for the “people”) - wasabi flavored sesame seeds - black sesame seeds
