Join us for the July 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! This month features the classic Japanese confection dorayaki, a sandwich of anko red bean paste between two castella pancakes that is the perfect on-the-go snack or light dessert. A symbol of good fortune, dorayaki is also just plain fun—top it with any combination of ingredients, including fruit and ice cream, for a satisfying summer treat. Follow along with special guest Aoi Tsuchida, founder and owner of Kyoto-based OYATSU AOI, and TABLE FOR TWO’s Debra Samuels to make dorayaki three ways. Participants can use prepared anko (available online or in Asian markets) or cook along step-by-step to make it from scratch. A Q&A session will also provide insight into the world of wagashi, Japanese sweets.

This month’s program is hosted by Japan America Society of Houston and joined by Japan Society New York, The Japan Society of Boston, The Japan-America Society of Georgia, 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.
