My kids go to school with their Bento Box every day. In Japan, it is very common to bring your own box for lunch. Some mothers make such a pretty Bento Box and it is now a popular item on SNS, that is where my French guests from Luxemburg got an idea of making Bento Box in Tokyo.
We actually have a variety of Bento boxes accordingly to seasons, occasions etc. At this class, I chose a bamboo-made box of rectangular shape, nice for early summer entertainment table.
Inside of the Box are:
Onigiri(rice balls with Nori-seaweed)
Beef and Shiso(minty herb) roll with grated Daiokn radish sauce
Sweet egg roll etc….
For Bento Box, every item needs to be tiny and easy to handle. The menu required a lot of hand works but my guests did everything very neat & beautiful!
My guest couple also prepared Gyoza, Japanese style pork dumplings.
All turned out really delicious but hot sizzling Gyoza was definitely one of the best tastes for my guests.
Many thanks for coming & Merci Beaucoup!
