The ever-popular Manju (Japanese rice cake sweets) is back! “Chef” Shoji will be conducting introductory and advanced workshops at the JCCC.

Shoji has been teaching cooking classes at the Canadian Japanese Cultural Centre in Hamilton before he started his manju workshops at the JCCC. He is a self-taught hobby chef with a passion for Japanese sweets and home-style cooking. Over time, he has built up quite a repertoire!
