便当教科书#2:Just Bento

妹妹今天考英文试卷+英文口试。

所以,做了一个简单无造型的便当给她。

本来真的是什么造型也懒得做的,但是,后来又想要介绍多一本便当教科书,所以,干脆就来个依样画葫芦,把便当书封面的便当给“做”出来。而既然便当书名叫“Just Bento”,那么,我就让自己的便当叫“Just ABC”吧,反正,妹妹今天考的就是英文试卷嘛。

然后,再衍生出多一个“5AM Bento”给今天没有考试卷的姐姐,顺便厚颜无耻地为自己的部落格打打广告。

来,放大来看,知道字母是由什么做成的吗?
 “Just Bento”,是由一位旅居欧美的日本人Makiko Itoh所著的。这算是一本较具权威性的便当教科书。也算是我买来的众多便当书中,其中看起来毫无文字障碍的一本便当书。

在这本书出版以前,要买非日文便当书来看,好像有一点困难。

所以,在刚开始尝试做便当的时候,最辛苦之处,就是要以书籍中零零散散出现的汉字,去拼凑、去猜测便当书中所使用的材料以及做法。

但是,当“Just Bento”出现后,许多曾经存在过的疑难杂症一下都豁然明白了。因为,本书可以算是毫不吝啬地把日式便当的食谱,介绍给读者。

也是图文并茂
而且,还图文并茂进行示范呢!

而更为重要的是,作者所介绍的便当,有80%是以菜为主轴的。并且,因为作者的便当都不走造型路线,所以,其便当多在20分钟内可以搞定。最后,她所介绍的食谱,调味料算是比较多的,但是,如果乖乖照放的话,所做出来的食物,可以算是色香味俱全的哦!

  1. Hi, I enjoy reading your blog. I used to teach too, but left the service after 8 years for New Zealand and picked up bento-ing from there. Schools in NZ have no canteen and the children have to bring their own lunches (since school hours are from 9am to 3pm). And I have this Just Bento book too, but am just not able to find Hippomum's book at Popular. I look forward to seeing more of your posts! Take care.

    1. Hi Hui Kheng,

      Thanks for visiting my blog. :D

      If you are still in Sg, you should be able to get a copy of Hippomum's book at Kinokuniya, Ngee Ann City.

      I wont be doing as much bento now as my kids will be enjoying their year end school holidays as from tomorrow onwards. School will only start in Jan 2013. That's like 8 weeks of break for me. :D

  2. Hi, I managed to get the book from an online bookstore in Taiwan. My, they have a wide variety of books and delivery was very prompt! I bought another one on making charaben too. But I seldom do charabens, since my children don't bring lunchboxes to school here (their kindergartens provide tea) and my husband prefers 'feature-less' bentos. Still, it's nice to just look at the beautiful lunchboxes.
