Forest Grove's Sister City program offers Japanese cooking class

Want to impress your friends with your worldly cuisine at the next dinner party?

Bring your apron and learn to prepare four traditional Japanese-style dishes. The hands-on culinary class is organized by the Forest Grove Sister Cities Committee and will raise funds for an ongoing student exchange program with Forest Grove’s Sister City, Nyuzen, Japan.

The class, originally scheduled for October 2014, has been rescheduled to Feb. 28 at 11 a.m. (check-in at 10:30 a.m.) in the Community Auditorium, 1915 Main St. in Forest Grove.

Class members will learn and prepare popular Japanese-style dishes: Maki-Zushi (sushi rolls); Okonomi-yaki, a kind of pancake or pizza; Yakisoba Fried Noodles; and Kinako-Mochi (toasted mochi in soybean power). Members will enjoy eating and sharing their Japanese-Cuisine at the end of the class.

According to Sister City Committee President Sandy Garcia, a different group will teach each dish. The Committee members will teach, and several Japanese students from Pacific University will help out.

The fee is $30 with a $5 discount for students, includes all ingredients and a pair of chopsticks. Class size is limited to 40 people.
