おうちごはん!(Ouchigohan) - Okonomiyaki

December 9, 2023 at 10:00:00 PM



About the Event:

Join us for the December edition of the family-friendly online Japanese cooking class series おうちごはん!Ouchigohan! – Japanese Home Cooking and cook along with us from your own kitchen! On the menu this month is okonomiyaki, a crispy and fluffy savory pancake made from crunchy cabbage mixed with batter.

“Okonomi” means “as you like it” and “yaki” means “grilled,” so you can pick and choose the fillings: keep it vegetarian with mushrooms or add shrimp, thinly sliced pork or bacon—however you like it! Learn how to make traditional okonomiyaki sauce to put on top, along with a drizzle of mayonnaise. Kids will love designing and decorating their very own special okonomiyaki! Then, a simple wakame soup rounds out the meal. This month’s dishes can be prepared vegetarian and/or gluten-free.

This month’s program is hosted by Japan Society New York and joined by The Japan Society of Boston, The Japan-America Society of Georgia, Japan America Society of Houston, Japan America Society of Colorado, Japan-America Society of Indiana, The Japan-America Society of Washington DC and Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia. Step-by-step cooking instruction and demonstrations are provided by TABLE FOR TWO USA, which leads the innovative series “Wa-Shokuiku 和食育: Learn. Cook. Eat Japanese!,” dedicated to making simple, healthy, homestyle Japanese food to enjoy with friends and family. 

JSB members use code "Boston" for discount.

The recipe card with ingredient list and Zoom link will be provided a few days before the event.
