Today I have four world cities represented in lunches – Sydney, London, Paris, and New York. They are not very accurate from a food standpoint but it was a fun way to celebrate the spirit of each city. I hope that it inspires you to make your own city themed food. I used this cookie cutter set for each of the lunches.
The Sydney lunch features a Sydney Opera House fairy bread sandwich.

Big Ben toast is prominent in this London lunch.

Tortilla Chips – Cut flour tortillas with a cookie cutter, brush olive oil on each side, sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp.
This New York City lunch features the Statue of Liberty in Cheddar.

These are fun lunches. I like the inclusion of bagels and cheesecake in the NYC one.
