Little Miss Bento’s Kawaii Bento Book

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 littlemissbento.com. Don’t the Hello Kitty sakura bento and Doggy donuts above 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•).

Kawaii Bento is available in English at shops all over the world, you can find the list over here. UK readers can buy from Amazon and Dutch readers can get it at bol.com.
