3.0 out of 5 stars Cold Lunches, 3 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Yum-Yum Bento Box: Fresh Recipes for Adorable Lunches (Paperback)
This book is good for children, and if you want to create cold food to look quirky - but if you are buying a thermal bento box, and expecting hot menus, this book is NOT the one to buy. I did, and found only one hot recipe - rice, burger and gravy! Even the food that I would expect to be served hot, chicken, pizza, scampi, fish, was all allowed to cool, before putting into the box (and that included a very tasty sounding turkey lasagne - but just so that the cheese decorations didn't melt ^o^). Anyway - still a nice book for the price, but as I say, look for something else if you want adult hot lunches for the office.

Bento as a packed lunch is eaten at room temperature. This is what bentos are like in Japan. Packed by mothers and wives, or purchased at a train station. Your review basically is like saying, why does a packed-lunch sandwich book mostly include cold sandwiches. Yes there are hot sandwiches, but most people would associate a sandwich with cold food.

I'm not lucky enough to have been in Japan to see traditional Bento's, and when I clicked on Bento's and bought one, it was a thermal one- so was expecting a mix of recipes. The review was for other folk like myself, who want hot food at lunchtime, and have bought a thermal Bento box. If anyone out there knows of good, healthy non spicy food to put into a hot Bento, I'd appreciate tips please!
Thanks

Really suprises me that anyone buying a book with "Yum Yum" in the title and food shaped like frogs, lambs and a piglet hamburger on the front would expect to find adult hot lunches in it !!!!.

WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU ON???? There are plenty of recipes that can be hot! The macaroni, the autumn leaves pasta and mint sauce, different types of chinese chicken, and some of the meatballs! Traditionally they are served at room temperature, yes. But when using a bento box that is either microwaveable or thermos then there are plenty of things to cook! Your review is utter rubbish and completely undeserving!!! Just because the recipe allows things to cool, it doesn't mean you have to when you have the right box! If the recipe tells you to jump off a cliff would you do that?? Gees! Oh and also Bento boxes ARE for ADULTS OR CHILDREN! You would just make larger portions for an adult, just as you can buy large adults bento container boxes. Many sushi bars now offer Bento box and these are exactly the things I have gotten in mine on ordering! What a totally uneducated review!
