Everyday Bento - Wendy Thorpe Copley

Paperback.  Near new condition.  2014

Wendy Thorpe Copley writes the popular bento blog Wendolonia, which takes the traditional Japanese concept of bento - a single meal packed at home in a reusable container - and Americanizes it.  Using simple ingredients found in any grocery store, Wendy creates entertaining meals that are sure to delight even the most finicky eater.

The bento food movement teaches us that foods can be attractive, nutritious, fun and delicious all at the same time.  Kids love to try foods that bring a smile to their faces, and will often eat things they wouldn't otherwise try.  For example, they'll love an adorable bear cub made from brown bread, peanut butter and jelly nestled on a bed of blueberries.  Cut watermelon into hearts, and tuck them next to a ham sandwich shaped like ballet slippers for your budding ballerina.  Create building bricks from healthy cheese, carrots and cucumbers - or a hot dog octopus, swimming across a sea of cucumber. Picky eaters or not, they'll try it!

 The 50 bento meals in this cookbook feature familiar foods with fun themes that will appeal to children and adults alike.  Follow the easy step-by-step instructions to recreate each bento box, or mix and match different elements from the book to make your own unique creations.  Make lunch fun again with Everyday Bento!
