Learn to make stunning edible pieces of art! Wagashi are traditional Japanese confections that are often served during the Japanese tea ceremony. These gorgeous sweets are made in a variety of shapes, reflecting the beauty of the seasons. Blush-pink sakura blossoms, for example, are evocative of the spring, while vibrant orange momiji leaves represent autumn. During this class, you will join a Japanese cooking instructor, Mai, and learn how to craft these beautiful Japanese confections at her Tokyo residence. Located just 5-15 minutes away from the Shinjuku and Shibuya areas, this class is very conveniently located for those who are visiting the major hotspots of Tokyo. First, Mai will go through the recipe and all the steps to making nerikiri wagashi. Then, you will get hands-on in the kitchen, starting by making the wagashi dough from scratch. Wagashi is made with bean paste and no animal products, so this wagashi cooking class is perfect for vegans and vegetarians. With the guidance of an experienced teacher, your sweet treats will turn out wonderfully, and taste just as good as they look! Even beginners can hand-craft bite-sized masterpieces! At the end, these traditional desserts will be served alongside high-quality matcha green tea, the luscious foamy texture and slight bitterness contrasting beautifully with the sweet handmade morsels. With step-by-step instructions and insights into the Japanese food culture, this is the perfect experience for those who are interested in the more traditional side of Japan.
