hey there, im emily, im a 24 year old student at teesside university in the north east of england. i'm also a trained chef although we didn't really cover international foods at college (or anywhere i've worked in the past 7 years)

i've been interested in bento making for a while now and when i moved to student digs i found myself in the middle of an asian/indian community and discovered that the corner shop sells japanese ingredients amongst other stuff you wouldn't normally find in supermarkets :)

i tend to make my own sushi quite a bit but i don't have much fridge or freezer space at the moment so find it a bit hard to keep fresh stuff for bentos

Re: hi guys!

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

I wonder what people in Japan did before fridges? Maybe Maki has some ideas on what sort of food to get that doesn't require too much in the way of refrigeration. All I can think of is root veges and tomatoes!

Hi Emily. You might find this post about making bentos in dorm rooms handy, especially the comments, where there are lots of good ideas.
