Learn Something New: How to Make Bento
Bento – Japanese Culture in a Box
Bento, the compartmentalized Japanese lunch boxes are a window into Japanese culture and the importance placed on presentation, color, nutrition and balance. In this hands-on workshop, food writer and cookbook author Debra Samuels will show you how to make onigiri, the rice ball known as Japanese soul food and pack a beautiful lunch the Japanese way. Each participant will create their own box and enjoy eating the fruits of their labor.
Samuels has lived in Japan for more than a decade, studied Japanese cuisine and is the author of, My Japanese Table: A Lifetime of Cooking with Friends and Family (Tuttle Publishing, 2011) and has conducted bento workshops around the country.
