Donabe cooking at Jamie Oliver Food Revolution Day in Santa Monica

Last Saturday, there was the first "Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day" in Santa Monica.  As a healthy Japanese & donabe cooking ambassador, I had an honor to participate in this inaugural event!

I demonstrated cooking a donabe rice dish by using the authentic Iga-yaki double-lid donabe rice cooker, "Kamado-san".   The menu was healthy brown rice onigiri (rice balls) with Japanese-style yuzu-kosho pesto!  It's a perfect picnic food for the coming summer season.

I had a great time at the event, and I am thankful to the organizers who worked so hard to make this successful event and for letting me part of it!

Happy healthy donabe life.
