Yes bentos are hot. This time, a TV reporter wants to talk to bentoists in New York City (preferably) or the NYC area. You must be willing to appear on TV, obviously. If you're interested send me an email at maki at makikoitoh com with your real name, email addy, and phone number where the reporter can reach you. (I am not disclosing what media outlet it is, but it is a legit one.)
ETA: The reporter wants to talk to Americans (I guess that means, no Japanese expats...) who love to make their own bentos.
(Update): Whoa that was fast. The reporter has what she was looking for, so please don't email any more. Thanks! continue reading...
OK, I think it's official now - bentos are hot! Now there is a journalist who wants to talk to people who make bentos in the Portland, Oregon area. If you are interested in being interviewed, please email me at maki at makikoitoh dot com ASAP.
The interest in bentos seems to be growing! Another reporter, this time from a major U.S. newspaper, wants to talk to young Americans or U.S. residents (college/grad students, high school students etc…or younger even) who make bentos regularly. If you’re interested in possibly seeing your name in print, shoot me an email at maki at makikoitoh com, or send me a DM with your email addy to my Twitter account.
Update: Wow, the response has been overwhelming. The reporter has more than enough people to interview now. Thanks everyone!
A reporter from The Globe and Mail (a Canadian paper) wants to talk to parents who make bentos for their their children, for an upcoming story. If you’re interested in being interviewed (especially if you are Canadian, but even if you’re not) shoot me an email at maki at makikoitoh com and I’ll forward you to the reporter. Become famous! hey!
Update: The reporter has enough people now to interview. Thank you everyone who responded!
