Thanks to everyone who responded to the entry on what they would love to see on my new web site. I have another question for you all. I have gotten a lot of requests for bento boxes and accessories which I do plan to offer. I am wondering about cookbooks....not for the recipes per se but for the ideas for your kids' lunches. I remember the first time I saw my students' lunches....I was shocked! They were soooooo cute.
So....the question is....would people be interested in buying these cookbooks for ideas? This book, for example, not only has recipes (in Japanese) but shows you (with pics) how to cut apples into flowers, rabbits etc. It gives ideas on how to dress up veggies (no recipe per se...just add things to make eyes etc), how to roll sandwiches etc. I figure you can get ideas from this book to then use American (or French or Greek or Russian etc) food as substitutes. This book has 128 pages and would be around $25 (there are lots of these kinds of books at different prices, this is just the one I picked up to blog about). People love Japanese craft books so I thought about these....thoughts?
