Join us for the March 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, participants will learn how to make tofu katsu and tonkatsu: fried cutlets that are crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. While traditionally made with pork, you’ll discover how tofu can be a healthy substitute, then incorporate your creation into a katsu sando—the Japanese sandwich that’s a staple at family picnics! Crunchy cabbage cole slaw and spicy edamame round out the menu for a balanced meal. All of this month’s dishes can be prepared vegetarian and/or gluten-free. 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 The Japan-America Society of Georgia and joined by Japan Society New York, The Japan Society of Boston, 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.
