Bento are these small Japanese boxes that allow you to take your lunch to the office, for a walk or on the train. If these lunchboxes are so successful in Japan, it is because they allow you to take a healthy and economical lunch break while being greedy! The presentation of a complete meal in a pretty box makes it both aesthetic and practical to transport.
In this book, Laure Kie invites you to learn about the art of bento by showing you that it can be easy and quick.
So, if you are in a hurry, you can make a meal in 15 to 20 minutes. If you have a little more time, opt for a more elaborate menu in 30 to 40 minutes. In any case, the first advice is to start by looking at what you have left in the refrigerator, because the main secret of these small Japanese bowls is to accommodate the leftovers!
