Mori Wilhite, Katsumi’s Teaching Kitchen owner, joined us Tuesday on “Life.Style.Live!” to give us a preview experience of her Japanese Chicken Curry cooking class. She also prepared Yakisoba.

She is offering an Anime Boot Camp for Kids during Christmas break as well. There, kids can learn how to make the dishes they see on their favorite anime shows (including bento boxes and ramen) and learn about Japanese culture.
