Book Review

“This book teaches you basic Japanese bento, lunch box recipes using ingredients you can easily find in the supermarket. Each recipe is simple (but delicious) and teaches you how to season the food to make each ingredient stand out. The colourful vegetables have a great look and provide nutritional balance. When I was a child, I loved the moment when I opened my lunch box. I always felt my mother’s affection in every beautiful and delicious detail.”–Hitomi Takeuchi, food protection manager California, founder of Coloridoh LLC ( “I own many Japanese cookbooks–including some from my favourite Japanese chefs–but I find them to be a little intimidating. I also own a collection of bento boxes that, until I read this book, I never used!

What I enjoy most about Chika Ravitch’s book are the simple instructions that don’t compromise the taste and sophistication of the dishes. She makes cooking Japanese food very accessible for beginners and experienced chefs alike.” –Andy Burstein, nutritionist “Always looking for ways to eat healthier without expending too much time in the kitchen. Bento for Beginners was the perfect book for helping achieve this goal. In addition to the great recipes, it was very helpful to learn how to improve storage life and tricks to making larger quantities (saving time in the long run).”
