Wagashi and Mochi Recipes

Learn to make traditional Japanese Wagashi, including Nerikiri, Mochi and seasonal motifs.

With a few simple ingredients, Wagashi are quite simple to make at home

In this course, Tokyo-based Wagashi Artist, Mai Irie, will share all that you need to know about making Wagashi, Mochi and Matcha Tea.

You will learn to make white bean paste from scratch using lima beans or kidney beans. Next you will prepare your own Nerikiri dough with white bean paste and glutinous rice flour. You will learn to color the dough and create gradations

Mai will teach you to shape your Nerikiri Wagashi using four different techniques. You will create four Nerikiri motifs: sakura, chrysanthemum, uguisu bird, and autumn leaf. You will make two types of Mochi: Strawberry daifuku and the Japanese raindrop cake ‘mizu shingen mochi’.

Finally you will discover how to whisk a perfect cup of matcha tea to accompany your creations.

Nice and short

I liked the course. It’s short, simple, and very approachable. On few occasions the audio was quite bad, and the instructor is using microwave oven which I don’t have, and which I’ll try to substitute for hot bath. Another thing which wasn’t very well explained is what consistency should the dough be so it’s considered ready.
