newCenter (JCCCNC) Virtual Wagashi Cooking Workshop - Sat., July 20, 2024, 11am-1pmPDT

The workshop will feature two traditional Kyoto style summer wagashi. Kuzuyaki (grilled kudzu) uses high quality kuzu (kudzu) starch combined with sugar and water and then steamed to a jelly like consistency. It is then coated in potato starch and quickly grilled to set the starch. Tamasudare (jeweled reed blinds) has a center of koshian (sweet adzuki bean paste) and is covered with a thin layer of kanten (sweetened agar agar). Both sweets evoke a feeling of coolness during the hot summer months. Easy to follow recipes will be provided. All registrants will receive the video recording link after the workshop.
Workshop fee $30 ($25 Center Members).
