Ouchigohan! Japanese Teatime

Join us for a special edition of the family-friendly online Japanese cooking class series Ouchigohan! We will start by learning how to make a type of wagashi, which is a traditional Japanese confection that pairs well with tea. Cook along with our instructor, Deb Samuels, to make daifuku, a mochi ball with anko or sweet red bean paste filling.

After preparing our treat, we will be joined by Tomoko Honda of Ippodo Tea to learn all about the teas that they make, and how Japanese people enjoy them in their daily lives. Honda will teach us the differences between three kinds of classic Japanese teas; sencha, matcha, and hojicha, and how to best prepare them.

If you’d like to brew along using the same teas and tools as our instructor, please feel free to check out the following products from Ippodo that can be shipped directly to you! However, purchasing is not required to participate in the program. Please allow for at least two weeks for shipping.
