Leanne Valenti’s journey to Bento + Picnic began in the foothills of Mt. Fuji. She was in Japan on a homestay after just completing culinary training at The Natural Epicurean. While waiting for a train to Tokyo, hunger struck, and she grabbed an ekiben, a boxed lunch sold at train stations. Fast food of a whole different order, ekiben are boxes composed of five to nine unique dishes, all specialties of the region. We caught up with this busy lady recently to hear a little more about the vision behind BENTO + PICNIC, plus get some inspiration for our own cooking for spring and summer!
