Craving Coffee

If you love Japanese and/or healthy food and want the tools to start exploring your own bento lunches, or want to add something new to your repertoire, this workshop is for you! We will have a night of learning, laughing and eating together at our cute venue Craving Coffee.

In this workshop you will learn about my flavour combinations and ingredients and plenty of tricks and tips on how to prepare your own nourishing bento in a few easy steps. You will assemble your own bento box with the food we have prepared  (I have boxes for you to use) and I’ll share my packing and styling tips. Finally we sit down and enjoy our feast with a chance to ask questions and have a chat :)

The recipes at this workshop are not just for bento but can be used for an easy lunch, dinner and snacks too!
