Experience Details
Wagashi are small traditional Japanese sweet treats made from plant-based ingredients. The main dough is a mix of beans and rice powder, so these sweets are suitable for vegans. Literally translating to “Japanese sweets,” wagashi is an edible art form that you’ll find almost everywhere throughout Japan, and they are often seen as an element used in traditional tea ceremonies. Wagashi sweets pair well with a bowl of matcha green tea and can be eaten as an afternoon snack or as a beautiful dessert. Handmade wagashi are crafted with careful attention to detail, with references to the stunning nature found in Japan. Wagashi making takes time and patience, but the end result is satisfying for its deliciousness and thoughtful aesthetics. In this online wagashi making class, you’ll learn how to make these beautiful Japanese sweets using traditional ingredients and techniques. First, you’ll make a sweet dough that’s typical of wagashi, then color and shape it, forming it into decorative and tasty nerikiri wagashi. The motifs will be selected so that even if you do not have the special tools, you will still be able to make beautiful wagashi. During this online experience, we will be making 2 types of wagashi motifs (2 of each for a total of 4 pieces). To join this wagashi making class, you will need to have the following ingredients: 1. Shiro-an (white bean paste) -- If you cannot buy it in your local market, we will send you a video that explains how to make it. Please prepare it before class. 2. Mochiko (glutinous rice flour or sweet rice flour) 3. Food coloring A complete list of ingredients and tools will be provided to you upon booking. We will also be using a microwave oven for this experience.
