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

To eat Japanese noodles it is polite to slurp the noodles unapologetically. 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 or Somen noodles. Soba is made with healthy buckwheat flour, which is high in protein, and Somen makes noodles as fine and delicate as angel hair. Both are eaten by dipping into a soy 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 them!

Shabu Shabu is Japan's unknown cuisine. It is one of the Nabe, cooking pot, dishes, and is treated as a cuisine because it involves thin-sliced, high-quality beef. There are restaurants specializing in Shabu Shabu where people go for special occasions, but it is also a perfect fun and tasty winter dish to keep you warm at home. At the table, you enjoy plenty of vegetables with thin-sliced beef with special Shabu Shabu sauces while you share the pot of food with your family and friends. I'm going to demonstrate how to prepare the ingredients, and then we will cook them as we share the meal from one pot! It’s lots of fun and I will show you how it is done. ​
