My daughters and I pack our own lunches for school and work and have always aspired to make them more aesthetic like the Japanese bentos; but our attempts have always been half-hearted at best because mornings are usually so hectic that we…

Make Your Own Bento for Lasang Pinoy

LP 22 – Puto

When I first started brainstorming about what to make for LP 22, I thought of trying my hand at making Tapey, a rice wine common during the holiday season in my mom’s hometown.
