May 9 – Okinawa Southern Japanese Cooking
Okinawa is a collection of islands located in southern Japan. Join Kimiko as she demonstrates how to cook a typical Okinawan chicken soup with daikon radish, kobu seaweed, and bonito fish broth. This combination of ingredients is characteristic of the region and is very comforting with its perfect balance of nutrition and umami.

Cooking with Koshiki: Nikuman, Steamed Pork Bun & Egg Drop Soup (virtual class)

September 19, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

If you travel in Japan during the winter, you will come across street food vendors and convenience stores selling Nikuman steamed buns. Originally called Chukaman (Chinese-style steamed buns) were introduced to Japan in the late 1920s and are now a winter staple across the country.

Today, we will prepare just that: floured buns filled with pork and onion, then steamed on the bamboo steamer. A side of quick and easy egg drop soup makes this a full and flavorful meal.
