Event Description

Join us for a fun-filled family-focused and hands-on exploration of foods from around the world, with Chef Anu Sehgal of The Culture Tree and Chef Mayumi of Wa-Shokuiku. This is our first hands-on Foodtober class for kids — they’re the ones working with our chefs to learn about and create foods from around the world. This year, we will be cooking and tasting foods from South Asia (India) and East Asia (Japan).
  • Session 1: The Culture Tree promotes South Asian culture through educational and enrichment programs. Chef Anu will kick off the event by leading a workshop on flavor-filled soups, salads, and sandwiches.
  • Session 2: Wa-Shokuiku combines the Japanese words “Washoku” (Japanese food) and “Shokuiku” (food education). During this session, Chef Mayumi will teach us how to create our own versions of “Onigiri” (Japanese rice balls).
Our agenda for the afternoon:
  • 2 to 2:15 PM: Welcome and introductions
  • 2:15 to 3 PM: Adaptation of Simmer & Sizzle with Anu (Indian cuisine)
  • 3 to 3:45 PM: Adaptation of Onigiri Action with Chef Mayumi (Japanese cuisine)
  • 3:45 to 4 PM: Closing remarks and clean-up
