Do you enjoy Japanese cuisine? 

Learn to make a Japanese lunch box with Boston Globe food writer and cookbook author Debra Samuels.  Participants will have an opportunity to learn the cultural background of obento, a Japanese term for box lunch, through a presentation by Ms. Samuels and a hands-on workshop.  Ms. Samuels will illustrate common differences in value, presentation, and nutritional balance between typical American and Japanese lunches.  Under Ms. Samuels' guidance, everyone will have the opportunity to make their own bento.  

Ms. Samuels has lived in Japan for over a decade andoffers her broad knowledge and experience with Japanese food traditions.  Join the JASP in welcoming Ms. Samuels to Pittsburgh at the Marshall Twp Municipal Building on March 26th.
