e-Learning Session: Let’s Make “Oyaki” !!

Momiji & JSS e-Learning Session

Wed, April 28 at 3-4 pm

1-hour online session (Zoom) each to learn about these popular Japanese food/ingredients, will be co-provided by Momiji Health Care Society and Japanese Social Services (JSS), on Wednesday, Aug 28 at 3-4 pm. *Separate registration required.

What is this session about?

*Held only in Japanese
Bringing back Wakaba Hoshino, who provided an yumm-azing Natto & Miso session from Local Koji Co., this time it’s “Oyaki” (see Oyaki on Wikipedia) !! Once you master how to make the dough (30-min bench time needed before cooking), savory/sweet, anything or nay leftover can be wrapped in and magically becomes your comfort bun (*requires cooking). Moreover, the cooked ones are freezable too!
Come and join us on this live session from Wakaba’s kitchen with her warm smile 🙂
Guest Speaker: Wakaba Hoshino (Owner @ Local Koji Co.)
A local mom of two from Japan who love good, yummy, and healthy food. Her love of miso and kouji fungus extended to establish Local Koji Co. She is also a JSS volunteer, currently studying social work full-time at York University.
