Bento fever is sweeping the world fuelled by its promise of superb food that is economical and healthy in these tough economic times. "The Just Bento Cookbook" contains 25 attractive bento menus and more than 150 recipes, all of which have been specially created for this book. Divided into two main sections: Japanese and Not-so-Japanese, the Japanese section includes classic bento menus such as Salted Salmon Bento and Chicken Karaage Bento, while the Not-so-Japanese section shows how Western food can be adapted to the bento concept with delicious menus such as Summer Vegetable Gratin Bento and Everyone Loves A Pie Bento. Each menu is accompanied by a full colour photograph of the completed bento, clear instructions for each recipe forming the bento, variation recipes, a timeline showing how bentos can be made efficiently every morning, and time-saving tips.
About the Author
Makiko Itoh was born in Tokyo and raised and educated in Japan, England and the U.S. After years of living in New York City, she moved to Switzerland, where she found it difficult to find authentic Japanese cooking. This inspired her to go back to her roots and learn how to cook the food her mother and grandmother used to make, using the limited range of Japanese ingredients available to her. In 2003 she started a blog about Japanese cooking called Just Hungry, and in 2007 a companion blog about bento box lunches called Just Bento. Just Hungry remains the most popular blog about Japanese cooking in English, and Just Bento boasts more than 220,000 subscribers and millions of page-views a month.
