3:30 PM  –  5:00 PM

Pack a summer bento (Japanese packed lunch) with cookbook author, food blogger, and designer Azusa Oda! In this workshop, participants will learn how to cook tamagoyaki (rolled egg omelet), Japanese potato salad, and baked karaage (Japanese “fried” chicken). Participants have the opportunity to cook alongside Oda on Zoom as they make dishes that are easy to pack up and take on the go!

Azusa Oda comes from a long line of professional and home cooks, and her abilities in the kitchen have been heavily influenced by growing up as her mother's unofficial sous chef. Raised in both Tokyo and the Bay Area of California, she had a bicultural upbringing that shaped the way she views Japanese culinary traditions and techniques. She created her blog, humblebeanblog.com, in 2008 to share her contemporary variations on simple and delicious Japanese recipes. While cooking is one of her passions, she nurtures an equal interest in design and has an MFA from California College of the Arts. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and daughter.

Purchase her book, Japanese Cookbook for Beginners: Classic and Modern Recipes Made Easy, in the JANM Store.
