This is a hands-on wagashi making class. Chikara Mizukami will demonstrate two classics: Nerikiri and Kuzukiri.

Nerikiri are hand molded bean cakes made with azuki bean paste and natural vegetable dyes for coloring. You will learn about the seasonal themes in Wagashi and the varieties of wagashi shapes - the abstract and impressionistic designs of Kyoto and the realistic designs of Edo (old Tokyo).

We will also make Kuzukiri served with brown sugar syrup. This is a very refreshing and healthy jelly dessert, which can be put together very easily.

The wagashi will be served with green tea. $75 members; $85 non-members, includes admission and supplies. RSVP early, 15 students max.

Reservations to or 213.625.0414 at least 48 hours prior.

Come early for the program with chef Chikara Mizukami & Sonoko Sakai at 2pm:
