Japanese Pastry

A class of pastry considered healthier than western pastry due to its low sugar and fat content, and the addition of fruit. Japanese pastry also offers gluten-free options.

Delicate desserts that aspire to perfection, they were born in Japan and now conquer the world

This online course focuses on traditional Japanese sweets, called “wagashi.” You will explore some of its variations, including traditional mochi, daifuku mochi with fresh fruit, yokan (vegan and gluten-free dessert based on beans and agar) and the artistic nerikiri.

Master pastry chef, Ken Ochiai, will share the knowledge he acquired in Japan, and the secrets he gained from years of experience, so that what you learn will be as true to tradition as possible.

By the end of this course you will be able to:

– prepare anko, which is the base of many Japanese desserts

– make mochi dough

– prepare mochi with different fillings

– create meticulous nerikiri decorations according to the seasons.

What you'll learn

You will learn how to make anko paste from beginning to end. Preparing it correctly is essential since it’s the base for Japanese pastry making. You will learn vital information, like boiling points and sugar cooking temperatures.

One more fundamental component is mochi dough. You will learn how to give it its characteristic glutinous texture.

Dorayakis, the “Japanese pancakes” filled with anko and decorated with the iconic Ochiai flower, are not to be missed.

You will also learn how to make yokan, a plant-based jelly that’s very popular in Japan.

And finally you will make nerikiri, the most artistic part of Japanese pastry. Its design is linked to a season, so you will learn how to mold and dye nerikiri according to the season.

Amor a tus creaciones, paciencia y buenos ingredientes.

Me gusto mucho, explico lo necesario y fundamental sobre los estilos de repostería japonesa y como hacer varios de esos postres. Se ve muy divertido poder moldear los postres con tus manos y armarlos usando tu creatividad.

Las recetas y las técnicas para aprender las masas

El curso no tiene las recetas disponibles, por lo tanto, no es lo funcional que yo esperaba. Te cobran extra para que te suscribas y poder ver las recetas
