Join us for the October 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, we will be making the iconic Japanese stew, nikujaga, which is perfect for cool fall evenings. Meat (niku) and potatoes (jaga) are simmered with vegetables and noodles in a sweet and savory broth—as the liquid cooks down, it permeates the ingredients with its delicious flavors! A kyushoku, or school lunch, staple in Japan, this warm and comforting dish is easy to make and will become a favorite in your home. Pair it with a refreshing cabbage and clementine salad, and a side of corn rice. Vegetarians can substitute yaki dofu (packaged grilled tofu) or a tofu cutlet for the meat. Participants will make their own dishes with step-by-step guidance from TABLE FOR TWO’s Debra Samuels.

This month’s program is hosted by Japan America Society of Washington DC and joined by Japan Society New York, 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 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.
