Japanese homestyle cooking is full of hearty comfort food favorites. You'll learn three of my favorite dishes to prepare, whether for the weekend or a quick weeknight meal. 

We'll start off with onigiri, those adorable rice balls that are a bento box staple. You'll also learn how to make Japanese Braised Pork Belly, an insanely succulent dish that just might find its way into your cooking repertoire. And we'll also make a refreshing Carrot Sesame Salad with Asian pears in groups to complete the meal. And we'll enjoy everything at the end with Japanese green tea.
