What is Bento?

So what is bento all about?  It is the Japanese word for packed lunch.  A bento style lunch is a great idea for people eating gluten free as Japanese lunches usually consist of rice, meat and veg rather than sandwhiches.  
I found this lovely bento lunch box in Paperchase this week.  Love the separate cutlery section and the movable food divider.  Of course a normal tupperware box with a decent silicone seal will do (must be leak-proof) but ones with dividers do help you arrange the food to make it look extra appealing!
