Ever since I was young, my Japanese mother would make me deliciously soft, delicately sweet and chewy homemade Japanese mochi. We would eat various kinds, including green tea mochi, savory soup mochi, and traditional white mochi. Since two years ago, my mom and I team up to bring you a piece of our heritage; a five-course mochi making class. We are delighted and excited to share the art of mochi making with you. Get ready to make and eat a lot of mochi! My website is

Pink Rosewater Daifuku Mochi
Small Plate
using sweet rice flour, rosewater and various fillings, including sweet red bean paste, chocolate, and/or fresh cut strawberries, we will steam, shape, pinch and form our perfectly beautiful mochi pieces. I will also show you two unique methods for making beautiful strawberry-filled mochi!
Green Tea Matcha Mochi
Small Plate
Made with organic matcha powder, sweet rice flour and other ingredients we will be mixing our mochi batter, steaming, and then forming and pinching our mochi treats to perfection, filled with a variety of fillings including sweet red bean paste, strawberries, raspberries, and/or chocolate!
Savory Mochi Ozoni Soup
this dish is a good luck dish, typically served at New Year's, but delicious to eat during any time of year. This dish consists of umami dashi broth made with kombu, mirin, sake, dried shiitake mushrooms, daikon, carrot, and miso, with a garnish of chopped scallion. We will enjoy this savory soup with a special white mochi made in the more traditional form, using whole sweet rice grains, which are steamed and pounded in a mochi machine. I will discuss how you can make this at home.
Mochi Donuts
Small Plate
We will mix, form, fry, and glaze 2 flavors of delicious mochi donuts, in two different forms- red bean filled mochi donut holes and vanilla glazed mochi donut (traditional shape). These are addicting!
Green Tea Mochi Ice Cream
We will form, fill, pinch and shape our matcha green tea ice cream mochi, which will be eaten on the spot! You will learn how to replicate all dishes in this class at home, as well.
