Join us for the January 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 oyakodon: a type of donburi, or Japanese rice bowl with delicious toppings. These full-meals-in-a-bowl are healthy, filling and quick to eat—everything kids need! Oyakodon features both chicken meat and eggs. Tender chunks of chicken are simmered with onions in a dashi broth and, when just hot enough, beaten eggs are poured over the top and cooked until silky and just set. Then, it is all set atop a fluffy bed of rice for a delicious dinner sure to warm your bellies. A refreshing and colorful daikon and carrot salad rounds out the meal. 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 Greater Philadelphia 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 The Japan-America Society of Washington DC.

Eat Japanese!,” dedicated to making simple, healthy, homestyle Japanese food to enjoy with friends and family.
