Okonomiyaki is a food of ordinary Japanese people which comparable to hamburgers to Americans. Okonomi means “what you like,” so the name implies the casualness. It is a healthy Japanese pancake which mostly filled with thin sliced cabbage and put together with flour and egg and added with variety of ingredients such as thin sliced pork.  Japanese love this dish because it is healthy and perfect for a casual party to cook at the table top to share with everyone and also eaten as a snack, lunch or dinner.  I'm going to demonstrate how to prepare it, and we are going cook it together at the table to share.    ​​

To eat Japanese noodles it is polite to slurp the noodles with unapologetic sounds.  And nothing is as refreshing and soothing as having cold noodles on hot summer days.  It is a Japanese tradition to have light cold noodles in the summer such as Soba noodles and Somen noodles.  Soba is made with healthy buckwheat flour which is high in protein, and Somen is very fine and delicate noodles as angel hair.  Both are eaten by dipping into a soy sauce based sauce garnished with wasabi, thin sliced scallions, Shiso (Japanese herb), and freshly ground ginger.  I'm going to demonstrate how to make the dishes and how to slurp it!
