Millet for Bento Box

You might have heard how crazy we are about Bento Boxes in Japan.
From convenience stores to local supermarkets, everybody sells and
buys Bento Boxes. But do you know who makes the best Bento? Moms!

Last week, we held a millet cooking workshop with
a young mothers' group from the Eastern Suburbs.

We experimented some dishes which could be
suitable for Bento Box... Here is what we cooked;
