In this cooking class with Chef Vivian and Michi, you'll learn the art of plating Japanese bento boxes while learning the history of this long culinary tradition. To begin, you'll prepare the bento recipes. This will involve first making a ginger-spiced beef gyoza and Japanese potato salad with cucumbers and dill before preparing a shio salmon paired with bok choy and asparagus and daifuku, a rice cake with red bean. After your bento dishes have been made, Chef Vivian and Michi will then guide you through the process of artfully plating each dish into a bento box.

It was a fun selection of food items. Sadly, the ingredients were not all listed nor some of the amounts. During the class, there were items that were not mentioned in the directions. I had hoped to hear more from Michi's experience with the food in Japan- he did not have much time to talk. Finally, we seemed to end class about 20 minutes early and a slower pace may have been helpful.

Chef Vivian brought so much freshness in her dishes. She used same day vegetables and made everything from scratch. I had so much fun learning and I hope to do it again shortly.
