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. Participants can cook their own dishes with step-by-step guidance from TABLE FOR TWO’s Debra Samuels. 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.
