Okonomiyaki Night

Join us for a fun and creative Okonomiyaki cooking night on Sunday, August 10. Okonomiyaki lover Shaun (Mokuyokai member) and Kansai area native Rie (Mokuyokai board member) will share some cooking tips as we make delicious okonomiyaki and share some laughter! Please come out to learn how to make this interesting free style Japanese dish or to show off your okonomiyaki cooking skills, and we all will expand our okonomiyaki knowledge!
Not sure what Okonomiyaki is? Okonomiyaki is a popular Japanese pan fried food that consists of batter and cabbage. Selected toppings and ingredients are added which can vary greatly (anything from meat and seafood to wasabi and cheese). This variability is reflected in the dish’s name; “okonomi” literally means “to one’s liking”. The dish is available all over Japan, but is most popular in Western, particularly in Hiroshima and Osaka. (From Japan-guide.com)

At the event, Shaun and Rie will demonstrate how to make okonomiyaki, and participants will then branch off in groups to make their own to share and enjoy. This event filled up quickly last year, so please RSVP early! Please note that as we have to pick up the ingredients in advance, we ask that participants note the cancellation policy.

At the Donwakai, you will meet approximately 80 people who have a strong connection to Japan: teachers, travellers, students, business people and others from Canada, Japan and elsewhere. You don’t have to speak Japanese to attend this event, but you should have a strong interest in or connection to Japan. Most of our participants have lived or traveled in Japan at some point in their lives. We also have Japanese-only table and one English-only table if you want to practice your language skills (the rest of the tables are whatever the participants are speaking). So if you want to network, share experiences about Japan, learn more about Mokuyokai or just meet like minded people, then don’t miss this event! The atmosphere is casual and feel free to invite a friend. Don’t forget your ID and please remember to tip your server.
