Welcome to my bento blog! I decided to start keeping a bento blog because I figured it would help motivate me to pack bentos each day. Not to mention, I am a big fan of the Japanese bento blogs that are all over the web and sad at the lack of English language bento blogs. I have been teaching myself Japanese cooking since late 2004 (with the help of a few friends as guinea pigs), and I really love the variety of flavors and types of foods used in this cuisine.
Recently I have started adjusting my bento for my palate. Japanese food uses a lot of sugar and I prefer things sour or salty. I’m a health nut and prefer to use whole grains like brown rice and quinoa. I’m also Cuban-american and like to integrate a little of that latin flavor into my bento. Cuban flavor includes cumin, lime juice, and garlic.
I’ve moved my blog to Blogspot because I’ve been using Picasa and it’s all integrated.
