A typical Japanese rice cake, mochi is made from pounded steamed rice, which becomes sticky and stretchy. It’s a quintessential food in Japan that can be used in savory dishes or traditional sweets. Chewy and gooey in texture, mochi can be addictive and absolutely delicious. Traditional Japanese sweets are known as wagashi, and are typically made from plant-based ingredients, making them vegan-friendly and usually gluten-free. Mochi can be used to make a number of wagashi that are popular throughout Japan, although different prefectures tend to have their own regional variations on sweets too. Discover the wonders of mochi for yourself in this Mochi Making Class in Tokyo, where you’ll make 4 different types of mochi from scratch. Using traditional Japanese recipes, ingredients, and cooking techniques you’ll learn about mochi making in this hands-on lesson. This class includes ice cream mochi, strawberry daifuku mochi, dango mochi, and cinnamon mochi! Make your own beautiful pieces of mochi which you can enjoy with a cup of matcha green tea.
