About the Author
No surprise that Kentaro turned his attention to cooking. Like his mom, he is known for creating fun, easy-to-make recipes--albeit with a more Western flavor--and also has appeared on television, magazines, and radio, becoming popular with the motto "Nice and easy, practical food with style." He is known to have revolutionized Japanese conceptions of good eating. His best-selling cookbooks are all about transforming convenience-store products
into attractive hot meals.
He frequently incorporates his artistic training working as a chef and illustrator for magazines and book stores, creating logos, and has co-authored works with his mother. To date, Kentaro has authored or co-authored more than 15 cookbooks.

Any of the food in the book can be cooked for the dinner and keep it in the fridge for the bento the next day, so it can be a time saver.
This may not be the first choice if you are looking for how to fix dishes use cheese, tomato, chicken broth, meat based western dishes but if you already know all that, this makes a nice change.
Highly recommend! =)
I really wish this had a "search inside" feature but I bought this book anyway and was not disappointed. Each of the bentos features a few dishes that are fairly quick and easy to prepare on a busy morning (especially if you think ahead and prepare some sides to keep in the fridge to use throughout the week).
I like a lot of variety in my bentos. Even though most of these include only 1 or 2 "sides" with the "main dish" I can easily include an extra vegetable, pickles or any of the sides listed in this or other books. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to start making bentos or to add to your bento library. My only complaint? I wish there were twice as many pages & recipes.
