A Summer of Pancakes: Sweet, Filled Pancakes from Japan and Korea
Taught by Jonathan Soma
Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He co-founded the Brainery, is the sciencey half of Masters of Social Gastronomy, has more hobbies than can dance on the head of a pin, and loves Waffle House about eighteen times more than you.

This class is part of our A Summer of Pancakes series
No maple syrup? No problem! Let's learn to make some just-sweet-enough pancakes.
First up is dorayaki, adorably tiny Japanese pancakes with red bean paste sandwiched in between. We'll not only learn to whip up the pancakes but also learn to craft red bean paste from scratch.
Next we'll take on the Korean hotteok, a yeast-risen pancake that can be filled with ingredients as wide-ranging as cinnamon, walnuts or brown sugar. They're popular in winter, but for our Summer of Pancakes let's just call this "being prepared."
Bonus: make a stainless-steel branding iron to put your own personal mark on your pancakes!
Note: This will be a hands-on cooking class.
