Our November Bento Snaps Contest Starts NOW!
For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, autumn is just about halfway over. Here in Japan, we have many special eating traditions to accompany fall harvests and colder weather. Some of these include eating chestnuts (kuri), used for dishes like kurigohan (chestnut topped rice) and monburan (chestnut flavored sponge cake), and roasted sweet potato (yakiimo), which is often eaten all by itself as a snack!
What are some autumn food traditions in your country? Have you ever tried to incorporate these into your daily bento box?
We would love to see how our friends from around the world are packing their fall bentos, which is why we are happy to announce a new Bento Snaps Contest! Starting now until November 30th, send your high quality bento photos to firstname.lastname@example.org or tag your photo with #bentoandcophoto to get entered to win a $100 gift card to our store! You can send us as many entries as you'd like- and no specific food is required.
The winner of this month's contest will be announced December 1st on social media.
