[ONLINE CLASSES] Table for Two – Wa-Shokuiku: Japanese-inspired Food Education Course for students of all ages
Friday, April 10 - Tuesday, July 7
Do you want to learn how to prepare beautiful and healthy food, while exploring a different culture and one of the world’s healthiest cuisines?
Join us for a unique Japanese-inspired food education online course, “Wa-Shokuiku – Lean. Cook. Eat Japanese!” for free now through July 7th!
Through this course, you can learn the principles of Japanese cuisine and food culture, and gain the skills to prepare healthy, nutritious foods to strengthen our bodies and minds!
The Wa-Shokuiku free online program is designed for students studying at home. The course consists of 6 units(*)that focus on 6 different topics to expose students to Japanese food culture and foodways. Each unit has 10 short sections which include fun and educational videos, cook-off competition videos, nutrition, recipes, activities, global food issues, interactive comment boxes and a unit quiz. Our experts will respond to student questions and comments. Adults are encouraged to assist the students as needed, to register, cook, complete the course, and provide us with feedback.
We realize you might not be able to obtain all the ingredients for the recipes in this difficult time, but we will suggest substitutions and you can improvise or save the recipes for a later date. The cooking activities are optional but if possible we encourage you to give them a try.
This program is geared toward middle and high school students, however younger students can also enjoy and benefit from the curriculum, albeit on a different level.
