We recently had the opportunity to create a video in partnership with Yamada's Deli&Market KYOTO, a Kyoto eatery that opened in March 2021!
Started by Mr. Yamada, a chef and university instructor specializing in the culture of Washoku (traditional Japanese cuisine) this charming delicatessen close to Nijo Castle offers delicious assortments of both Japanese and Western dishes.
The deli/market displays Mr. Yamada's attentiveness to details, featuring creatively presented dishes made with choice ingredients like organic veggies and local tofu, as well as quality imports sourced from Europe that are hard to find in Japan.
So, we were thrilled when Mr. Yamada agreed to prepare food for our newly redesigned "Signature Bento" for our video!
It's made of glossy, high-quality BPA-free plastic and accented with a minimalist Bento&co logo on the top lid. Perfect for parties, and entertaining.
With its many compartments, this "ojyu" style box (large, multi-tiered bento usually used during New Year's in Japan) is certainly a challenge to fill but we were blown away by Mr. Yamada's masterpiece!
We hope you enjoy viewing Mr. Yamada's process and his creations displayed in the Signature bento box, as much as we did.
