Yum-Yum Bento Box: Fresh Recipes for Adorable Lunc&hellip by Maki Ogawa

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect!, 20 May 2012
After spending too much time browsing through blogs, I have developed a keen interest in making food look cute. This book is absolutely perfect for making a boring lunch much more entertaining! The recipes are healthy, packed with fruit and vegetables and you could easily adjust the recipe with one of the other bento ideas if you weren't too keen on a particular food. The recipes are easy to read through and the layout is great, with clear pictures so you know what you're aiming for it to look like! Perfect for brightening up a dull day.
Face Food: The Visual Creativity of Japanese Bento&hellip by Christopher D. Salyers

The designs in this book are brilliant and amazing to look at, it's a great book to have on your coffee table when guests come round and lovely to browse through. However, dont buy this book thinking it is a recipe book, there are no instructions on how to create the Bento's, it is more of an appreciation of the art of Bento. An experienced Bento maker would probably be able to look at the designs and recreate them, but it would not be easy for a beginner. Beautiful designs though!
Cupcakes From the Primrose Bakery by Martha Swift

I bought this book after owning and loving 'The Primrose bakery Book', as with that book the recipes are gorgeous, with photos of every recipe, with a great layout and delicious recipes. I would advise buying this one before The Primrose Bakery Book, rather than after, as I felt that there was a lot of repetition (more recipes in the latter.) However, there are great recipes in this book that I'm not sure I would've wanted to miss out on had I not bought this book as well! It would make a great gift and is a great place to start if you're a beginner as they're are a variety of basic cupcake recipes with easy to follow instructions.
