Even though we can’t get together in person while we shelter in place for our usual Community Kitchen nights, our Community Kitchen committee is holding our monthly virtual potlucks so we can share the joy of cooking Japanese and Japanese American family recipes with everyone! The theme for October’s virtual potluck is sweets, treats and Japanese desserts! For all of us with a sweet tooth, show us some of your favorite treats! We’d love to see all kinds of desserts, from more traditional Japanese snacks and treats to potluck classics like layered Jell-o to your tastiest cakes, cookies and pies! No potluck is complete without a great assortment of desserts!

We encourage you to try making your dessert in advance to share on your webcam during the virtual potluck! Here are some suggested desserts to share:

  • Mochi and manju
  • Your favorite cake or pie
  • Puddings, flans, ice creams
  • Potluck classics like layered Jell-O
  • Desserts using Japanese flavors like matcha, adzuki bean, kinako, etc.
