About the event
Join us for a special edition of the family-friendly online Japanese cooking class series おうちごはん！Ouchigohan! – Japanese Home Cooking. We will start by learning how to make a type of wagashi, a traditional Japanese confection that pairs well with tea. Then cook along with our instructor Deb Samuels to make daifuku, a mochi ball with anko or sweet red bean paste filling.
After preparing our treats, we will be joined by Tomoko Honda of Ippodo Tea to learn all about the teas they make and how Japanese people enjoy them in their daily lives. Honda will teach us the differences among three kinds of classic Japanese teas, sencha, matcha, and hojicha, and how to best prepare them.
This is a great opportunity to learn more about everyday Japanese Teatime as it is enjoyed by families and friends in a relaxed setting.
The recipe card with ingredient list and Zoom link will be provided a few days before the event.
