    Are you an intermediate to advanced Japanese language learner? Tired of studying by yourself or looking to broaden your spoken Japanese skills?

    JASWDC is hosting networking lunches in Japanese for members and non-members to participate from the comfort of their own homes! Each lunch will be hosted on Zoom Meetings and will focus on a discussion topic, giving participants the chance to practice Japanese with native and advanced speakers.

    Lunches will be held on a bi-weekly basis and are free for JASWDC members and non-members.

    Upon registration you will be sent an email including the Zoom meeting link.

    Join us for daikon oroshi hamburger steak and mochi ice cream! Hamburger steaks are an immensely popular dish to make at home in Japan. Sometimes served with a tomato sauce or a teriyaki sauce, we'll make "wafu" or Japanese-style hamburger steaks, which merge Japanese and western flavours by adding grated daikon and ponzu sauce. Our fusion meal will be topped off with mochi ice cream! 

    Check the ingredients list before registering.  Once registered you will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom link. We will send the recipe card a week before the class.

    Ingredients (serves 4)

    • 1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
    • 3 tbsp milk
    • 1.3 pounds (600g) ground beef
    • 1 small onion, chopped

    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • black pepper
    • 1-2 tsp oil
    • daikon radish (about 1/4 length), grated
    • 2 green onions, chopped fine
