Quick bento for today : rice noodles with garlic shrimp, carrots, shitake and baby pakchoi in the lower tier and grapes, blueberries, blackberries, clementine, apple and a little goat cheese in the top tier.
Like so many before me, I recently discovered bentos and the joy of bringing healthy and goodlooking lunches to the office. Besides having colleagues jealously looking at my pretty lunch, it also saves me from having to buy another one of those insipid sandwiches oozing with mayonnaise.
This new blog will try to document my hesitant steps into the wonderful world of bento.
So, come in, take a seat, grab a drink and ... bon appetit :o)
How to start ?
If you'd like to make bentos, but you don't know how to get started, Maki from Just bento hosted a Bento 101 course on her site. It's a fun way to get acquainted with bentos, what they are, how to pack them, etc. Check it out.
