The ladies of the Temple will be starting off 2020 by hosting a Cooking/Food Demo – Yaki Manju on Sunday, Jan 26. There will be a short meeting beforehand to hear an update regarding the Jodo Shinshu Buddhist Temples of Canada Women’s Federation (WF) which is our national organization. It will also be a great opportunity for people to provide input so bring your thoughts and ideas for both women specific activities as well as ones the ladies can coordinate for the entire Sangha!
After the meeting will be the Cooking/Food Demo – Yaki Manju which is a traditional manju that mom would make on special occasions. Yaki means ‘to cook’ and manju is a sweet Japanese confection like mochi but it uses regular flour instead so it’s more cake or cookie-like.
This demo is open to EVERYONE (men, women, and families) – There is a nominal fee of $5/person and children (12 and under) are free. Come and enjoy the company of the sangha as we learn together!
PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED so we know how many people to expect and since space is limited.
There will also be a Cooking/Food Demo – Mochi Making (open to everyone) scheduled for Sunday, Feb 23 and on Sunday, Mar 8, there will be a workshop called Getting to the Bottom of It – Pelvic Floor Dysfunction in Women. More information to come.
It is your involvement and participation that will make these successful!
