Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month Class Series – Okinawan Cooking
May 9 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
We are excited to present a cooking and lectures class series highlighting the food, traditions, and cultures of the Twin Cities’ Asian American and Pacific Islander community. Community instructors Jess Toliver, Koshiki Smith, and Kimiko Molasky will generously share their expertise on the traditions and history of ingredients and recipes from the AAPI community in Minnesota and beyond.
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.

This class series is collaboratively presented by Eastside Co-op, Mississippi Market, Seward Co-op, the Wedge, and Linden Hills Co-op as a way to examine and connect our cooperative values with food, equity, and social justice; and to recognize and celebrate cultural heritage months that reflect our communities.
