The book itself is pretty awesome. I'm a cook, but she doesn't dabble nearly as much as I do. The recipes in here are relatively easy to make, and still manage to be good tasting food. They do some really interesting things in the book too such as, having time tables and order of cooking.
For example: It will tell you to cook the rice for 10 minutes, the chicken for 5 minutes, and the veggie prep will take 2. It will then have an image that shows the individual items cooking time and an overlap for optimized order of cooking. Start rice, prep veggies, cook chicken. At this point everything should finish around the same time and your chicken doesn't sit around and get cold.
To add to all of that, the Bento aspect is all fun and cute, which is a very nice touch. The book is written well so that you aren't FORCED to be making things into stars, it's just an awesome addition to the recipes they've given you.
I have never been more satisfied with a cookbook in my 20+ years of cooking! The recipes are straight forward, easy to follow and incredibly good. What I liked most about this book was that the author kept the Western cook in mind and gave helpful tips throughout the recipes regarding where best to find specific ingredients or, if necessary, the author also tell you how to make or where to buy a substitute. I can't honestly think of one American cookbook that does that well!
Another thing that really impressed me is that the author included sections on how to select the right bento box to meet your needs, what accessories (silicone dividers/cups, vegetable cutters, etc.) she found useful, and even takes the time to discuss how to properly prepare your rice. She also includes a really helpful section on food safety and a section on bento meal planning.
I have been extremely satisfied with each recipe that I've tried and each one was a truly flavorful, thoughtful pairing of delicious and very attractive food. I really, really liked how each entree was broken down into it's component dishes and how there's a quick but informative write-up of what the dish is (how it tastes, why it's popular/liked in Japan, etc.) paired with the instructions to make that particular component of the entree.
Finally, I highly recommend the ginger pork and new potatoes recipe! I loved it so much I quadrupled the recipe and now serve it at home for dinner. My kids devour this dish and ask for seconds! I'm completely "converted" - no more boring sandwich lunches again for me. In my opinion, there's no greater joy than opening your lunch box to a meal you prepared yourself that looks as beautiful as it is satisfying and nutritious! And this book will help you do it!
I was absolutely blown away at how much information is in this book and the ease of its use. It gives step by step instructions on not only how to prepare the bento-specific meals, but how to pack the box itself, along with tons of other helpful info. I was worried that I wouldn't have time in the mornings to cook the food and have it fresh the same day, but the timelines are a huge help.
There are countless tips, tricks, and hints throughout the book to make bento fun, easy, and healthy. The author even has website addresses in the back linking to their website with even more information, including a bento meal planner (HUGE help).
Overall, definitely the book to buy for the bento beginner!
I use it every week, have made about half the stuff in it, and me and my 9-year old love everything I've made. (Our family is American, but love Japanese food, having traveled to Japan many times and having gotten used to the REAL cuisine of Japan.)
The recipes use easy-to-find ingredients if you're in any major metro area. Don't worry about not having access to 'strange/exotic' ingredients, as other reviewers have noted.
You will begin to appreciate vegetables much more once you begin cooking from this book. We've discovered new uses for several veggies it grow in our garden, and have begun using the greens from things like beets and turnips in ways so delicious I cannot describe. All are from traditional Japanese country cuisine, where nothing is wasted. As a hint, many veggies can be quickly and easily prepared with salt, sesame oil, and soy sauce. The recipes with veggies are tremendous!
I have several bento books, this is the one I use all the time. Simply the best. If you're looking at multiple books, stop now and buy this one before you keep looking. You'll be glad you did.
