Yum-Yum Bento Box Review!

I was recently given the opportunity to review the new book Yum-Yum Bento Box: Fresh Recipes for Adorable Lunches. I have always been a fan of Crystal Watanabe and Maki Ogawa 's work but I must say this bento cookbook exceeded my expectations!

Whether you are a bento novice or a seasoned pro, there is something for everyone in this 141 page bento lunch cookbook. I particularly enjoyed the photo walkthrough of some bento supplies in the beginning of the book.

The Author's have used a variety of ingredients and methods throughout the book, ensuring that there will be something for everyone regardless of taste preferences or abilities! I found all of the instructions to be clear and easy to follow.

For everything from smiling rice frogs to a simple summertime sandwich bento, Yum-Yum Bento Box: Fresh Recipes for Adorable Lunches is an excellent resource for fun bento ideas and inspiration! I have really enjoyed reading this book and look forward to trying my hand at some new skills!

  1. I love this bento book! It's great to see more english versions coming out!! The japanese ones are soo expensive when you buy them online :(
    I'd really like someone to write a bento book with more amercian foods though, just for a little variety, and ease of finding ingredients lol :)
