There is nothing better than giving edible art!

Wagashi is a general term for traditional Japanese sweets. There are numerous kinds of Wagashi, and Nerikiri is among the most common and appealing ones. Nerikiri dough is made of white bean paste and “Gyuhi”. The white Nerikiri dough is dyed with different colours and filled with stuffing. Then, knead into various designs using your hands, specific tools, and skills.
Unlike traditional designs, we will make four Nerikiri designs with six lovely Christmas-themed Wagashi in the class. The class will explain the making of Nerikiri dough, colouring and stuffing techniques, the introduction of Wagashi tools, and precautions for storing finished products. The course will make good use of the time to focus on techniques such as stuffing, tool usage and kneading, so the Nerikiri will not be made during the class; however, we will provide you with the recipe. The course suits participants who have yet to gain experience in Wagashi making.
