The OAA inv ites interested persons to learn one of the old-fashioned Okinawan process es\, which not only emphasizes flavor\, shape\, and density but also how y ou mix the dry ingredients. Other important factors include using your han ds to scoop and drop the dough into the oil (instead of the more convenien t ice cream scooper) and using a very precise temperature (not too hot\, n ot too low).\n\n<strong>Since the traditional recipes and cooking methods are not being widely utilized\, the goal of this and subsequent workshops is to pass these on to the next generation.\n</strong>\nThe cooking worksh op will be followed by a short lecture about sātā andāgī presented by the&nbsp\;<strong>OAA&rsquo\;s Uchinaaguchi (Okinawan language) instructor Chogi Higa</strong>.\n\n<strong>Admission is $5 for OAA members and $10 f or the public.</strong>&nbsp\;A limited number of participants can be acce pted for the hands-on cooking portion due to limited space\, so please&nbs p\;<strong>RSVP by August 21 (Monday):&nbsp\;310-532-1929\,&nbsp\;<a href= "mailto:oaamensore@gmail.com" target="_blank">oaamensore@gmail.com</a>.</s trong>&nbsp\;(Even if the spots are filled\, people are still encouraged t o observe the lecture portion of the workshop)\n\nThe OAA Center is locate d at&nbsp\;<strong>16500 South Western Avenue in Gardena (event in the Yam auchi Building).\n</strong>\nThis workshop is being organized in coordinat ion with the OAA&rsquo\;s Okinawan Bazaar (October 8)\, which is the only annual event in Los Angeles that celebrates Okinawan culture.
