3:30p.m. - 5:00p.m.


Making gyoza (Japanese dumplings) can be a fun group activity or a solo meditative practice. In this interactive virtual workshop, learn the basics with cookbook author and designer, Azusa Oda, and make this perennial favorite a part of your cooking repertoire. You will be sent the ingredient list and necessary setup in advance so you can cook along from your own kitchen.

Azusa Oda comes from a long line of professional and home cooks, and her abilities in the kitchen have been heavily influenced by growing up as her mother’s unofficial sous chef. Raised in both Tokyo and the Bay Area of California, she had a bicultural upbringing that shaped the way she views Japanese culinary traditions and techniques. She created her blog, humblebeanblog.com, in 2008 to share her contemporary variations on simple and delicious Japanese recipes. While cooking is one of her passions, she nurtures an equal interest in design and has an MFA from California College of the Arts. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and daughter.

Oda’s book, Japanese Cookbook for Beginners: Classic and Modern Recipes Made Easy, is available in the JANM Store.  BUY NOW
