This book may be the most contemporary we have written in a while. Bento boxes are kind of revolutionary, but we want to make them more accessible and interesting to most people, especially if they wish to prepare these for their families. I think a lot of people get intimidated by the word “box”. Let’s clarify this, you don’t have to have a box per say to prepare a meal like this. You can use a plastic container, a plate with deigned compartments, or perhaps even a homemade Bento box idea you created yourself.
Bento boxes are fun to make, and you can use this opportunity to teach your children about nutrition, your husband about getting into the habit to prepare his lunch or your elderly mother to accept your homemade, delivered meals.
It does not matter why you need a Bento box in your life, we will provide you in this cookbook many wonderful and delicious ideas. You will become the Bento box expert and maybe you can spread the word and the ideas to your neighbors and friends. I have shown many of my friends the advantages to making Bento boxes and have everyone in the family helping themselves many nights of the week. Which is perfect for when we are so busy with different activities.
