We have a big announcement! Our first cookbook titled Simply Bento: Delicious Box Lunch Ideas for Healthy Portions to Go is released from Quarto Publishing company! There are over 70 delicious and practical Bento recipes with more than 60 easy side dish recipes.
The majority of the recipes are newly created for the book. Some of the recipes are classic Japanese Bentos like we usually cook on our website Japanese Cooking 101, such as Teriyaki Chicken Bento, but there are also more trendy American style Bento, including Quinoa Salad Bento.
Simply Bento shows you the finer points of bento-making, and there is something for everyone:
- Classic Japanese Bento
- Sandwich Bento
- Sushi and Onigiri Bento
- 10-Minute Bento
- Noodle Bento
- Low-Carb Bento
- Vegan Bento
- Popular Japanese Bento
- Bento for Special Occasions (including First Day of School and Halloween Bento!)
The book will teach you how to cook the recipes, of course, and how to prepare foods in advance and manage time.
If you want to give kids and family tasty but nutritious Bento lunches, this book is perfect for that. If you work and want to bring your own lunch to save money, control weight, or just want to eat tasty Bento, this book will work great too. Also, the main dishes of the Bento can be converted into dinner entrees easily, by multiplying the recipes to feed your entire family.
Keep this book in your kitchen for yourself or give it to your family and friends to encourage healthy and delicious cooking!
