Bento designed by Gentil Restaurant, Shizuoka, at the 2nd Mt. Fuji Network Forum!

The 2nd Mt. Fuji Network Forum was being held at Grandship on the 2nd and 3rd of March 2012 for an international seminar on children with congenital heart diseases.
As Ms. Keiko Kubota, Chef at Restaurant Gentil, had devised a bento for the participants using exclusively products of Shizuoka Prefecture I deemed it of great interest!

Granship really looks a ship!

A room had been specially designated to promote some Shizuoka Products!

  1. I love the dark matcha chocolates. I suppose they were made with dark chocolate and matcha (not the usual white chocolate). It gives me some ideas…
    Sakura ebi! The real ones! (The Chinese copy it very well, from the visual point of view of course 😉 )
