Cooking Class Menu

1.Nerikiri
This Japanese confection is served at a tea ceremony. It is made of white beans and shaped beautifully. You will make 5 designs of nerikiri learning how to shape it with nerikiri tools. 

2. Matcha Tea
Matcha is a finely ground green tea powder made from the young and nutrient rich leaves of green tea plant. You have probably tasted matcha latte or matcha ice cream before but in this class, we will make pure matcha tea. No sugar, no milk. The matcha tea will accompany the delicious nerikiri we made.

  • Green Tea

    Green Tea

    The astringent constituent in Japanese tea is a type of polyphenol called catechin. Japan has done a great deal with the humble tea leaf. For example some benefits of the catechin in the tea leaf can lower cholesterol in some cases. Roasted over charcoal at a high temperature and grown under shade for at least 20 days are one of the examples. The most popular Japanese tea might be ryokucha. Depending on the timing of picking the leaves, the grade, the price can be noticeably different.

  • Tea Ceremony

    Tea Ceremony

    The Japanese tea ceremony is a centuries-old tradition closely tied to Zen Buddhist principles, and a popular way to experience Japanese culture. There are several variations on this ritual. At its base, powdered green tea (matcha) is prepared and served in accordance with strict rules. Oftentimes, wagashi (Japanese sweets) is served alongside the bitter green tea.
