The World of Bento
Bento is a Japanese term for "packed meal in a box". As part of the ongoing tradition, many children in Japan grow up with the taste of their family through bento (i.e. in many schools it is expected that students would bring their own lunch), and a good number of them would become bento makers for their own family in the future. Oh, did I mention that making bento is also a great way to diet?
Above are photos of the kind of bento I bring to school these days. Watch out for future bento collection tags at this blog for more showcases and related recipes!
