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!
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!
