About the workshop
Sara will introduce us to the basics and culture of bento and the 5 colours, flavours and qualities in typical Japanese food. With simple techniques, tips and tricks she will guide us through her own take on bento – fresher, quicker and simpler to make, plant based and with a fusion of east-west flavours. Together, we will make a range of dishes from Sara’s book Bento Power: Brilliantly Balanced Lunchboxes before assembling and eating our own bento, with some practical tips on styling and food photography. Most of all we will have lots of fun!
The recipes are vegan, gluten free and free from refined sugars. If you have food allergies please get in touch. We provide bento boxes for you to use on the day but you can also bring your own.
