I’m not sure when my love of everything miniature started. Maybe it’s when I realized I would always be the shortest in the class. Or when the first twelve-year-old thought it was an accomplishment to be taller than I. But Bento box lunches tap into that love. A little tiny box, filled with good things to eat. Combine that with some artistic moms, and you’ve got a new form of edible art.
