A new year and I have started a new job…in a great location, a Grade II listed building (the former patent office). Fabulous, but apparently a microwave isn’t allowed in the building, which means I need to rethink lunch. I don’t want to fall into the expensive habit of buying my lunch everyday. So I think I will dive into Bento! I gave a preliminary go last week with some grilled tofu, brown rice Onigiri and a tomato and avocado salad. Good stuff. Now I am surfing the net for inspiration and will post some of my successes (and not-so-successes) here. Bring on the Bento!
I started long ago in San Diego, stopped in Orléans, Boulder, Paris, Austin, Göttingen….and finally landed in London! Along the way I was an English Teacher, Biochemist, Project Manager, Publications Planner and now work in PR! I am really passionate about good food and good ingredients. I especially love helping children discover how fun and rewarding it is to cook, and understand where all their ingredients come from. The illustrations with my cooking with kids posts are by my longtime friend Katherine, you can see more of her work here: http://www.coroflot.com/katherineataylor Looking to the future I hope to have a smallholding of my own one day.....in France, so I better start working on my rusty French!
