Little Miss Bento’s Kawaii Bento Book

Posted on May 26, 2015 by

I’ve been drooling over the cute bento creations from Shirley Wong (a.k.a. Little Miss Bento) for a while now. So when I read that she’d published her first book, it deserved a spot on my wish-list.

Kawaii Bento’ teaches you the basics and shows how to make cute bento with simple step-by-step guides.

Kawaii Bento offers over 70 pages of recipes divided in themes, such as weather and fairy-tale themed bentos. The other pages explain basic ingredients, tools and techniques. For example how to colour rice and how to shape rice balls. You can also find character templates at the end of the book.

Shirley mostly uses everyday ingredients such as rice, bread, eggs, cheese, carrots and cucumbers. Which is very convenient, especially if you haven’t got an Asian supermarket in your neighborhood.

Aside from the book there are plenty of recipes and ideas on Don’t the Hello Kitty sakura bento and Doggy donuts look too cute to eat? So if you haven’t heard of the website yet, I can really advise you to take a look (•ᵕᴗᵕ•).

    This looks adorable! I’m currently loving fancier lunch sandwiches. They’re tasty and very quick to make, but whenever I see bentos it does make me excited to try that again too. People get so creative with them, some really are works of art:)
