Maruhon Sesame Oil Partners with Just One Cookbook for a US Giveaway

Just One Cookbook is partnering with Maruhon to give away a set of their premium sesame oils to 30 lucky winners. The three 100% pure sesame oils Maruhon is giving away are... Lightly Toasted, Toasted, and Dark Toasted.

Just One Cookbook (JOC) was created by Namiko Hirasawa Chen (Nami) in 2011 as a blog to keep track of her recipes and to share them with her friends who wanted to learn Japanese cooking.

Nami says "My mom cooks with Maruhon sesame oil too and I can’t tell you how excited I was when I found out when they finally brought their products over to the US! The aroma and flavor of the oils are truly exceptional, and once try, you’d be able to tell them apart. So don’t forget to enter this giveaway and win yourself a set of their sesame oil; Lightly Toasted, Toasted, and Dark Toasted!"

Nami learned cooking at a young age from her mother who prepared home cooked meals daily. She was in the kitchen with her mom almost every evening, learning how to prepare ingredients and master techniques specific to each dish. As was custom for her generation, Nami’s mother cooked from instinct and heart – never writing recipes down. After moving to the US, Nami found she no longer had access to the wide variety of Japanese foods she grew up with. With a desire to record and share her family’s recipes and her vast knowledge of Japanese cooking, Nami created Just One Cookbook.

This giveaway contest closes on Monday, November 25, at 12 p.m. PST and is open to US residents only. Click here
