IMPORTANT: If the weather is good, we can make the food outside in our nice garden!! Corona virus safety comes first :)
Hey! I'm Johanna and I love food, travel, being creative, learning languages and meeting new people :) I studied Japanese at university and lived in Japan for 1.5 years. Being a lover of Japanese food I took some cooking classes and now I still cook Japanese food often. One of my skills acquired and hobbies is making Japanese bento lunch boxes. I love sharing my brought-from-Japan tools, tips and tricks with my guests and giving them ideas and providing them with "character bento" examples! Guests, young and old (activity is suitable for children as well!), can then creatively use all tools available and knowledge acquired to make the bentos they feel like making. :)
