Join us for the November 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, learn to create onigiri (Japanese rice balls), which are a traditional comfort food made of steamed rice, and a delicious snack enjoyed by people of all ages in Japan. Filled with different ingredients and wrapped with nori (roasted seaweed)onigiri are easy to make and a fun snack the whole family can create. In this online workshop, families will learn about Japanese culture, healthy eating and how to make and decorate four onigiri—enough for everyone to take part! Join us online to make your own dishes with step-by-step guidance from TABLE FOR TWO’s Debra Samuels.
