This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom.

Though the myriad of boxed Japanese curries are all delicious in their own way, there’s nothing that beats the flavors and smells of creating your own roux blocks and building your own curry from the bottom of the pot. Join Elise to make this homemade Japanese comfort food and let yourself become enveloped by this sweet and tasty food hug! Served over a warm bed of rice.

Born and raised in Colorado, Elise Hayashi grew up in a family where knowing how to use a paring knife was more important than riding a bicycle. This sparked her passion for food and cooking at an early age, and she enthusiastically relocated to the Bay Area to study nutrition science at UC Berkeley. Outside of the classroom, Elise helped implement childhood obesity and exercise research, and worked as a pastry assistant to fill her free time with galettes and mousses. She also broadened her experience with food by studying and cooking her way through the Mediterranean diet in Italy, and working on an organic farm in Japan. Now, she is excited to merge her gastronomic backgrounds to share her love of food with the 18 Reasons community. During the rare moments when she is not eating, Elise can be found trying out new sports, playing and listening to live music, or wandering the aisles of grocery stores and farmers' markets.
