Soooooo…have I mentioned before that I wrote a book?
I’m so excited to announce that my first book, Everyday Bento: 50 Cute and Yummy Lunches to Go, will be appearing in bookstores and online early next year. That feels like such a long way off — and in fact the book is still being edited and tweaked as I write this — but I just got to see it all put together for the first time and it was so exciting that I couldn’t wait to share the news with all of you.
I checked in with my publisher (Tuttle Publishing) and they told me I could share the cover and part of one of the layouts here on the blog. Woo hoo!
So what can you tell from this sneak preview? A lot! Let me give you a few details:
- The book features 49 all new, never-before-seen bento lunches! (A variation of one of them did appear on the blog a few years ago.)
- Each spread includes clear, step-by-step directions and lots of photos showing how to make the featured bento.
- Every page is chock full of ideas, techniques, and tips that you can use to recreate the bentos exactly as they’re shown. Or you can also mix and match techniques to create the lunches you dream up!
I’ll be sharing a lot more about the book as the publication date draws near so stay tuned! Or if you’re as excited as I am, Everyday Bento just went up for pre-order on Amazon this week so you could hop on over and buy a copy to ensure you have it in your hands the very day it’s released!
