The "Cooking Class for the Deaf" was opened in Morioka City, Iwate Prefecture on December 23, sponsored by the Iwate Prefecture Information Center for the Deaf. It was the second event following last year which was popular.
Fifteen participants from the school children to the senior citizen enjoyed making the dish such as the sushi, the vegetable soups, and the banana cakes while taking communications through note-taking and sign language. After it had completed, all the members enjoyed eating what they made.
The next cooking class is scheduled for January 23, 2011.
