Everyday millions of japanese people, young and old, leave their homes with a bento in hand.
bento (boxed lunches) are handmade every morning packed with tender-loving care to give their recipients a warm-hearted well-needed boast to finish off the day.
in her first english-language release, tv chef and nutritionist megumi fujii has prepared 72 mouth-watering box lunch recipes that are easy to make but are over-flowing with the hearty-goodness that is essential in every japanese bento.
her ten-minute bento will not rely on visual designs seen on flickr streams or on blogs.
instead she focuses on sharing everyday japanese dishes created to satiate hunger and satisfy an ever expanding japanese palette.featured dishes:mushroom hamburg steakeasy korean bibimbapcolorful eggs & hamyuzu chickenavocado salad sandwichopen-face spring roll bentochicken cutlet bentobeef bowl bentochicken teriyaki bentosaladsradish & buckwheat noodle saladfrench toast saladchinese-style noodle saladdessertscheesecake ballspetite muffins
