About the Event:

Join us for the April edition of the family-friendly online Japanese home cooking class series おうちごはん!Ouchigohan! – Japanese Home Cooking and cook along or just watch from your own kitchen! On the menu this month is Fruits Sando!

Is it a dessert? Is it a sandwich? It’s both! It’s Fruits Sando, the famous Japanese edible work of art.  A kaleidoscope of fruit, strawberries, orange, kiwi and bananas, is arranged on pillows of homemade whipped cream and sandwiched between pieces of fluffy bread.  Sliced at a precise angle and you get a gorgeous cross section of delicious fresh fruit.  Join this family friendly activity and learn how to make fresh whipped cream and how to select and place the fruit to maximum effect when cut. 

These delightful treats can be served for snacks, instead of birthday cake, or at brunch.
