Three kinds of Japanese sweet (Wagashi)

・Dango(Japanese Mochi)
Dango is Japanese rice cake or Mochi. It’s coated with Mitarashi syrup or Anko, and usually three to five are stuck on a stick. Mitarashi syrup is made from soy sauce and sugar. Anko is sweet red beans paste. You can make Dango and Mitarashi syrup.

Manju is steamed ban with sweet red beans paste inside. You can make ‘Usagi Manju’. It’s very cute in the shape of a rabbit.

・Matcha Pudding
My Matcha Pudding is made from soy milk. You can put some toppings of brown sugar syrup and roasted soy flour.

All my Japanese sweets are made from only vegetable ingredients, and l don’t use white sugar;)

About Host



★★★★★ (5)

Hello everyone. I'm Kayo. The mother of three kids. I enjoy making meals and lunch boxes for them everyday. I try to make Japanese cuisine for their health and growth. I love making and eating Japanese cuisine(Washoku) and sweet(Wagashi). I experienced living abroad in 2018, and I learned about different food styles such as vegan, vegetarian and halal. I was surprised that the food diversity is very natural overseas. After returning to Japan, I received a lecture from BentoYa Cooking (Japanese cooking association for vegan and vegetarian), and certified as an instructor. I want to pass on Japanese cuisine that can accommodate the food diversity. My cooking class is held at home. Children are also welcome. there's a Japanese-style room, so if you wish, you can dine in Japanese style. Let's enjoy cooking together:)

Last time I took a trip to Japan, I took advantage of this package to get some Japanese cultural Immersion and enjoy family-style dining. Now I am hooked on it. Can't wait to do this again.
