The word ‘bento’ derives from a southern Song Dynasty slang term for convenience and is said to date back to the 13th century. This is ancient Japanese eating. In this 3-hour cooking class, learn the old art of making a proper Japanese bento box meal.
The lesson begins with master chefs explaining Japanese-style seasoning and offering a demonstration on various Japanese cooking techniques. Afterward they hand the knives over to you. Cook several bento specialties, such as a nourishing miso soup, tempura vegetables and even an eggroll, a staple in every Japanese child’s school lunchbox. The menu changes every three months, and always includes seasonal ingredients.
When the cooking is done, put the knives away and prepare to eat. Snack away on everything you’ve cooked, sitting with the other participants and enjoying a traditional Japanese bento meal. At the end of the 3-hour lesson, leave with the recipes of the dishes you’ve cooked, so you can prepare the meal for friends and family back home.
