This event has passed
In this interactive cooking class, Marianne Tshihamba serves up dishes inspired by her travels. Japanese Onigiri are a staple of Japanese lunch boxes (bento boxes). They are usually in the shape of circles or triangles so they can be easily eaten with your hands for a fun and savory snack! Onigiri are sold widely across Japanese convenience stores and they’ve had a recent surge in popularity among food trucks. They are often filled with intensely flavored fillings to complement the mild flavor of rice. For this class, you will be using umeboshi (pickled plum), pickled daikon, salmon, tuna with Japanese mayo, and salted cod roe.
Learn at Hill Center, then create Onigiri at home and add a new staple to your cooking repertoire!
Complimentary beer and wine are included in the price of the course!
An ingredients list and recipes will be sent out following the class.
