Join us in this family-friendly event hosted by The Japan Society of Boston, The Japan-America Society of Georgia, the Japan-America Society of Houston, The Japan-America Society of Washington DC, and the Japan-America Society of Greater Philadelphia as we cook along with Table for Two’s innovative food program, Wa-Shokuiku - Learn. Cook. Eat Japanese! Make simple, healthy homestyle Japanese food to enjoy with your friends and family.

Special recipes have been selected to introduce participants to Japanese food philosophy and preparation techniques. This session of Ouchigohan will feature three easy, delicious, and nutritious dishes. First, we'll make a Salmon Teriyaki Bowl as well as a Salad with Carrot Ginger dressing. And for dessert, we will put together a simple ice cream with Sweet Azuki Bean topping. This class will focus on 2 simple sauces that can enhance so many different dishes.

All classes will be taught by Debra Samuels, lead curriculum and recipe developer for Wa-Shokuiku, cookbook author, cooking teacher, and 2020 recipient of the John E. Thayer III Award for Outstanding Contributions to Cultural Exchange Between the United States and Japan.
