JETAANY 2021 Shinnenkai

Start off 2021 with JETAANY’s week-long virtual Shinnenkai from Monday, January 25 to Friday, January 29! All virtual events are FREE!
We’ll have JETAANY chefs going live on our Facebook page, sharing some of their favorite recipes, as well as a talk by author Scott Haas (via Zoom).  On Friday, we invite everyone to come together virtually for a Kanpai, social gathering, and games (via Zoom).
All virtual events are free, but if you want to enhance your Shinnenkai experience, we will mail you a swag bag for $15. The package will include JETAANY-branded goodies: reusable utensils (a set of chopsticks, a spoon, and a fork), a reusable grocery tote, a face mask, and recipes from all of the virtual cooking events. Swag bags are limited to the first 100 people, and the deadline to register is midnight on Sunday, January 17.
