This time students at Hokusei Gakuen tried to teach me how to make okonomiyaki, which we call "savoury pancake" in English.
English teachers at the school invited about 15 foreigners to go to the school's kitchen. We were divided into groups and the students had chosen to cook different Japanese dishes, using recipes they had written in English and as much English as they could with their guest.
My group did great - we made a pile of pancakes and then sat and ate them all with miso soup and white rice dumplings with a sauce of soy and sugar.
Thankyou ladies! I'll try and cook okonomiyaki at home.:-))
