Introducing June (and July) 2022 JOC Cooking Challenge!
Welcome back to JOC Cooking Challenge! This is our second challenge since we launched the event back in March. I hope you had fun making Mosaic Sushi at our 1st installment.
What is JOC Cooking Challenge
It’s a quarterly online event on Just One Cookbook where I share a new recipe for you to make at home, and in return, you just need to snap a picture of the final dish and share it with us!
The JOC Cooking Challenge months are March, June, September, and December.
This Month’s Challenge Recipe
The recipe for the second cooking challenge is Japanese Milk Bread (Shokupan)!
Whether you’re an experienced baker or a beginner baker, I thought this would be a perfect “challenging” recipe to tackle.
I’ve spent countless hours (more like months) working on this recipe itself as well as photographing, filming a full-length video, and writing the detailed blog post with instructions. I really wish you succeed at making the Japanese milk bread.
Please take time to read the entire post and recipe first, before you head to the kitchen! It’s very important to be well prepared for this recipe. And if you have any questions for trouble shooting, please leave it in the comment section. We’re ready to help!
As I understand that many of you will need to purchase new baking equipment and some people go on a summer vacation, I’m extending the June challenge to be a 2-month-long challenge instead of the regular one-month-long. Start preparing for the equipment early on! It takes time to ship things these days.
This contest is open to everyone worldwide. We will randomly select 3 winners at the end of the challenge using random.org. Each winner will receive a $100 Amazon gift card.
Everyone who participates in the JOC Cooking Challenge and sends us the picture of your final dish via email is automatically entered into the prize draw.
Please note that we will not judge based on the creations, but you need to make sure your submission meets the scope of the recipe.
