Mochi making is an essential part of Japanese New Years. It is traditionally eaten as part of the new years food in Ozoni, or new years mochi soup. The Suyari Table is an English-language class for traditional and contemporary Japanese confectionery – wagashi. Since 2014 Miyuki Suyari, a bilingual teacher, holds the classes at her home in Tokyo for foreign residents and tourists in Tokyo.
The lessons are designed to be fun and enjoyable in an at-home atmosphere. She tries to keep the recipes as simple as possible so that you can easily reproduce them at home! In the mochi making class you can learn how to create several different kinds of mochi from sweet to savory and you can even learn how to make breathtakingly beautiful traditional wagashi sweets. ▶
