Format: Paperback
Excellent resource and not only just about Bento cooking. The author shares his memories about being a kid in Japan with a mother who apparently created excellent Bento meals for him every day, meals that were prepared with skill and with love. Bento Love is a great title for the book. Many thanks to Mr. Kobayashi.

this is a great book for recipe ideas, you do not have to use it literally, which is the great thing about Chinese cooking, very interesting

rofusely and beautifully illustrated in full color throughout 15 Aug 2009
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Japanese cuisine, while not as ubiquitous as Chinese restaurant fare, is nonetheless highly prized by those with a gourmet taste for Asian dishes. What is especially appreciated with Kentaro Kobayashi's "Easy Japanese Cooking: Bento Love" is that this collection of elegant entrees take as its inspiration traditional Japanese box lunches called 'bento', and includes the author's childhood favorites such as Salt-Grilled Chicken Steak Bento; Spicy Sweet Beef and Shiitake Stir-fry Bento; and Crispy Dumpling Bento. But this gourmet quality Japanese alternative to ordinary American hamburgers and hot dogs does not stop there, but includes such selections as Fish and Chips Bento; Cheeseburger Bento; and Veggie-Filled Meatballs Bento. Profusely and beautifully illustrated in full color throughout, "Easy Japanese Cooking: Bento Love" is a unique and highly recommended addition to personal, professional, family, and community library Ethnic Cookbook collections.

Tastes so good! 23 Aug 2009
By J. Burke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Really like this book! Recipes tried so far are good both hot (for dinner) and cold (for bento boxes). Only down-side is amounts seem for single serving, which is good for a bachelor, but not for a family. Fortunately, multiplying recipes isn't too hard.

A Man's Bento! 8 Oct 2009
By cynical_reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Kentaro Kobayashi is a well known TV cooking personality in Japan, and has published many cookbooks there. This is a translation of one of his books. His speciality is easy home cooking that even a guy can tackle, and this book reflects that. Portions are generous, and the bentos are practical - attractive sure, but not pretty. Never mind though, the recipes I have tried so far are really good! A great book for Japanese cooking enthusiasts and bento lovers.

Best cook book in a long time 20 Oct 2009
By Linda K. Bailey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I came home from Japan with this book waiting for me. I have tried several recipes, both as dinners for my family of 6 (ages 7-93) and for lunches for the school kids and working adults. Every dish has been easy and turned out like the picture! 5 stars from every member of the family. I hope the next cook books by this Author are as good. We are hooked on these fresh, well balanced meals. I have purchased two books as gifts for friends.

Good book not only for bento 25 July 2010
By allgoo19 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is not a book for how to cook the well known Japanese dishes but how to cook the material you have or can be found easily in the way Japanese people do. You get to learn how to use soy sauce, miso, mirin etc. After that, it leaves the room for your creativity. Everything in this book is for bento, so the type of food is limited to such purpose, that means no soup, no ramen.
Any of the food in the book can be cooked for the dinner and keep it in the fridge for the bento the next day, so it can be a time saver.
This may not be the first choice if you are looking for how to fix dishes use cheese, tomato, chicken broth, meat based western dishes but if you already know all that, this makes a nice change.
