Teacher: Aiko

What you'll learn in this japanese cooking class:

Learn to make oyakadon (a sweet and savory rice bowl with chicken,eggs, and onions), paried with gomae-ae (crisp cooked green beans tossed in a sesame and soy dressing)!

Since Aiko can’t physically welcome you into her home, she wants to do so virtually!

Our online classes are designed to be special, meaningful opportunities to share cooking, culture, and connection--just like our real life experiences. We want you to cook along, and we promise there will be plenty of time for questions, conversation, and stories. It will all end with a virtual dinner party where you'll get to share in the fruits of your labor, apart, but together!

In this 2.5 hour interactive online experience Aiko will guide you through making two of her family recipes. First you'll learn how to make Aiko's very snackable gomae-ae (cooked green beans perfectly dressed in a sauce made from toasted sesame seeds, sesame paste, toasted sesame oil, soy sauce, and mirin). You'll then prepare oyakadon (fluffy rice topped with an umami-rich mixture of chicken, eggs, and onion)..

Here’s how it works:

After registration you’ll receive an email with the Zoom link, shopping list, equipment list, and recipe packet.
