In Japan, there are many different types of Bentō for different occasions and purposes. In the middle of May 2022, we had the order to create for the visitors of the HighEnd trade fair in Munich for two days changing Japanese Bentō manufacture. A nice opportunity to show our bandwidth for a Japanese high-end manufacturer.
A simple Bentō for a practical purpose
Although the bento is small, half of it is rice to fill your stomach to some extent so you can get back to work in the afternoon.
This is accompanied by a main dish that goes well with the rice and four to five vegetable and egg dishes to balance the nutritional content of the meal. Finally, balance is one of the central aspects of Washoku and thus also of a classic Japanese Bentō.
The main course varies between meat and fish depending on the day, so it won't be boring even if you eat it every day.
Bentō #1 with teriyaki chicken
The main dish on the first day was teriyaki chicken.
Tender chicken with crispy skin comes out of the oven into the pan and is drizzled with a homemade sweet and salty teriyaki sauce.
The pork wrapped green beans are cooked with rice vinegar, which has a refreshing acidity that makes your mouth water. The dashi maki egg roll with bonito broth has a soft and gentle taste. The chopped cabbage aids digestion.
Bentō #2 with grilled mackerel
The main course of the second day is grilled mackerel.
The mackerel with fat is seasoned with salt, grilled and served with lemon. The refreshing acidity of the lemon gives it a light taste.
Large Chikuwa pieces (a japanese "bamboo ring" from fish) are fried crispy with the taste of nori (seaweed).
Broccoli as a seasonal vegetable with sugar, soy sauce and sesame seeds drives away fatigue from work. The salted Organic-Egg with soft-melting yolk is already a popular ingredient in our Bentō boxes.
