Wagashi (Nerikiri), green tea matcha

Would you like to experience the elegant, aesthetic beauty and appreciate autumn in Japan through making “Wagashi” – traditional Japanese confectionery?
In this experience, you will be able to make autumn themed "Wagashi" and taste them together with a bowl of matcha green tea which is regarded as a heavenly combination!

This is a newly opened class especially for autumn season.

-Learn how to make nerikiri dough from scratch.
(where most places would have all the prep work done and only have shaping/molding)
- Learn how to tint the dough and shape into gorgeous little shapes. (which might include orange maple leaves, chrysanthemum, and persimmons). You can learn elegant nature-inspired design from Mai, a professional teacher and Wagashi artist.
- The host will serve you matcha green tea in her tea bowls from her collections.
- Enjoy tea time with the host! She is happy to answer any questions, make recommendation about ingredients, tool shops and share her passion for Wagashi and Japanese cuisine!
- Every participant will receive a copy of the recipe in English.

You can check her creations on her IG(@misswagashi)!
