About the event
Dorayaki sandwiches are made of anko (餡子 - red bean paste) between two castella pancakes for the perfect on-the-go snack or light dessert.
The treat is notably a confection of good fortune as the shape is said to symbolize a great embrace and unconditional love. Moreover, dorayaki is just plain fun as it can be topped with any combination of ingredients, including fruit and ice cream, to create the perfect summer treat.
Join special guest Aoi TSUCHIDA, founder and owner of Kyoto-based OYATSU AOI, and beloved Ouchigohan! instructor Debra SAMUELS in making dorayaki three ways. Participants can use prepared anko (available online or in Asian markets) or cook along with Tsuchida-san and Debra-sensei to make your own sweet red bean paste from scratch. A Q&A session with Tsuchida-san will also provide insight into the world of wagashi Japanese sweets.
