I was so excited to hear that one of my favourite bloggers was shortly to be publishing a book about bento. I thought it would be great, and I wasn't disappointed! I knew that it would be full of lovely pictures of bento lunches to inspire me, and it certainly is, but to make it even better it has step by step instructions for each lunch, with clear photos showing every step along the way.

Other helpful features include a food idea list, a list of foods by colour (invaluable for helping design a balanced and beautiful lunch) and several pages introducing basic techniques and tools.

I particularly enjoyed this book because it uses mostly ordinary English/American foods rather than the traditional Japanese foods that you usually find in bento lunches, making it much more accessible to the standard lunch packer here in the UK.

This book is perfect for beginners and seasoned lunch packers alike - I've been making bento style lunches myself for nearly two years but I've found plenty of new ideas in the book to inspire me all over again. If you need to pack lunches for yourself or for your children, this book is for you. It would make a lovely gift too!

Cute AND do-able food 7 Mar. 2014
By Lise L. LaTorre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I first started making cute lunches I bought a bunch of bento books. They were so adorable and inspiring, but also completely intimidating. Even if I could make those lunches, my kid wouldn't have eaten them. I really wish I had had this book to get me started. The lunches are adorable AND easy to make, using foods my child recognizes and loves (but turned vegetarian with no problem!)

I highly recommend this book for everyone

Great resource for sprucing up your lunch 6 Mar. 2014
By Trina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'll be honest, I love bento and I don't pack lunches for kids. This book is a great resource for adults, too! I especially like the Idea List and the Foods by Color section - what a great way to quick-pick a lunch! The list includes things I usually already have in the refrigerator and pantry. Even if you don't have a supply of bento boxes, you'll see great examples of how to add a little flair to your lunch with the basics, too.

The pictures are fun and descriptions are easy to follow, and the ingredients and equipment list make it easy to take a quick glance at what you'll need. What I find the most, though, is inspiration - following a few basic techniques (pack it tightly and neatly) and flipping through the pictures, I am ready to spruce up boring work lunches! A few items I'm definitely making: a rose from sliced deli meat, antipasti bento, radish roses, and strawberry hearts.

I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to add interest to their own lunches (or for the kids, too, sure!). You'll learn how to make packing a bento quick and easy, find a wide variety of examples, and you'll probably think of some of your own ideas.

Beautiful resource for making cute and tasty lunches 4 Mar. 2014
By Steve Denton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a great resource for anyone who makes their kids or themselves lunches and wants to break from the monotony. It offers clear steps for quickly and cheaply getting into packing bento style lunches. Guides on what tools to use and where to get them. Food lists for when you are stuck for ideas and beautiful photography of step by step instructions to recreate 50 very cute and yummy lunches.

I have already tried a couple of ideas and my kids loved them. The steps are easy to follow and have pictures to guide you.

It is also a great book to give to a picky eater to look through you may be surprised at what they want to try when it's presented in such a fun and colorful way. My kids looked through and asked for several lunches right away that I would not have thought they would touch!

All in all a wonderful book and I look forward to making more of the lunches.

I received this copy gratis as a early reviewer all thoughts are my own.

Fun for the Whole Family 5 Aug. 2014
By Michele A. Jenkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I knew from reading Wendy's blog for many years that this was going to be a great book with easy to follow instructions and fun photography. What I didn't expect was how much my kids would love it! They pick it up again and again and study each page while pointing out things they want me to make for them (our copy is a veritable porcupine of post-it note bookmarks).

A fun and useful book that makes a great gift -- but be sure to get a copy for yourself as well!
