Workshop Series Overview
“I want to cook and eat healthily for myself and for my family.”
If you have thoughts like these, don’t worry! In RESOBOX’s new Japanese Cooking Workshop Series, you can learn how to make traditional Japanese dishes without any prior knowledge of cooking in New York City! We will introduce many healthy and delicious Japanese recipes that you can easily make on your own at home. Each workshop will follow a basic format: introduction of the dish, how the dish impacts Japanese culture (or how Japanese culture impacts the dish), the nutritional value of the dish, preparation of the dish, and finally tasting. Each class features a different part of Japanese cuisine!
