Traditional Japanese Bento Making


Whether you or someone you know is new to Japanese food/sushi making or not, after creating your own bento from scratch you’ll leave with many new skills to really make lunch time more varied, colourful and healthy.

We eat with our eyes before anything else and this workshop will include making healthy vegetable tempura, Japanese potato salad, at least 2 types of sushi and Japanese style pickles. An extensive range of proteins (including Japanese rolled omelette, natto), vegetables and fruits will be available to encourage creativity and to allow you to put personal touches on your final bento.

We’ll be using a range of lesser-known Japanese health foods such as ‘umeboshi’ (pickled plum paste), ‘natto’ (fermented beans) and different varieties of seaweed. Bento accessories including small forks, mini cupcake holders and bento dividers will be used to separate and present all foods beautifully.

Please inform Alice if you or anyone you are booking on behalf of has any dietary needs. This workshop can easily be adapted to cater for vegetarian, vegan or gluten free diet types.
