Japanese Sweets 'Wagashi' Making in Tokyo (ETR074)

2014.12.25

Introduction

We make 2 kinds of traditional Japanese confections. One is called "nerikiri", which has a delicate sweetness that dissolves in the mouth. Intended to please the eyes as much as the palate, they are crafted to reflect four seasons, so many different kinds are produced at a specific time of the year.
"Nerikiri"is almost always made by hand. With a delicate touch, the ingredients are fashioned into exquisite representations of nature’s beauty. About 300years ago it was created, and as time went by, it was connected to the tea ceremony. Then it gradually was developed into current beautiful wagashi that can truly be described as “edible art”. The other one is "teriyaki", which is a pancake type confection stuffed with sweet bean paste. You can enjoy making taiyaki with an instructor.
