Have you fallen in love with Japanese sweets and would like to eat them at home? Most Japanese sweets aren’t sold outside of Japan, so you might want to learn how to prepare them yourself.
Yuko’s sweets-making class will teach you how to prepare typical and seasonal Japanese sweets using easy-to-get ingredients and simple processes.
Depending on when you visit, you might be making strawberry Daifuku, chestnut sweets, or Uiro (local jelly).
Your host Yuko will pick you up from Iwakura Station and you will go together to her traditional but renovated Japanese house with a vegetable garden and Japanese landscape garden.
Have some seasonal homemade tea and learn about the day’s recipes while getting to know your host.
Put on an apron and start cooking, preparing the three different kinds of Japanese sweets. Yuko shares her cooking tips and substitution ideas to create various flavors from the same basic recipes.
Throughout the preparation, you will get to taste ingredients and dishes and discern the changes in flavor during the cooking process.
Try the sweets you have prepared together with a cup of tea and learn about Japanese table manners.
You can also join Yuko at the traditional part of the house in a Tatami mat room for a casual tea ceremony. Learn about the tea utensils and brew your own Matcha tea.
After writing a short questionnaire about your experience it’s time to go back to Iwakura station from where you will depart.
I love Japan and all facets of Japanese culture such as gardens and traditional architecture. I would like to introduce you to many aspects of Japan, but I have decided to start with Japanese food.
I’m an aficionado of cooking, tea, herbs, Chinese herbal medicine dishes, dietary education, vegan dishes, cereals dishes, and sweets with licenses in all of those subjects.
