Via Col Bento! Allow us to introduce two lovely ladies who are passionate about bento and cuisine: Kitty’s Kitchen and Semplicemente Pepe Rosa! Our lady friends who planned this exciting event hope that this contest will invite people from Italy as well as the rest of the world to discover what bento means.
Summer has shone and it’s time to pack it up for sun dresses, sandals, pretty picnics and a plethora of perfect lunches! Say goodbye to unhealthy fast food and go bento! Plan your own lunch at home and have a real meal…VIA COL Bento!
Here’s how to participate in the VIA COL BENTO contest:
- Step 1: Prepare a bento recipe or a recipe for meals that can be easily prepared in a plastic, wood or glass box.
- Step 2: Take a picture of your bento in your office, at the university, during tea with kids in the afternoon or a photo of your lovely Sunday family picnic.
We hope to collect a maximum of recipes and we will share them with you.
