JASC – Learn to Make Japanese Sweets – Sakura Nerikiri

May 7 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Nerikiri were originally made to be served at Japanese tea ceremonies and are one style of Japanese sweets. Nerikiri is made by mixing and kneading white butter-bean paste and mochi rice dough.

Fee: $65 for JASC Members, $75 for Non-members


You will receive enough ingredients to make 6 pieces of Nerikiri and make a total of 4 pieces during the class.

Attendees need to prepare the following materials for the workshop: plastic wrap, towel for wiping your hands, plates, food color (any brand)

*Nerikiri ingredients include beans and rice flour

Presented by Toshiko Sugii Steffes, a Japanese sweets(WAGASHI)designer.

“I am fascinated by the beauty of WAGASHI, which is expressive of the four seasons and nature. My creations are boundless as there is so much variety and sophistication in WAGASHI techniques. I have been trained in traditional WAGASHI with a renowned teacher, and contemporary WAGASHI with a rising star teacher. I am a certified master in making WAGASHI. I make custom order sweets, offer demonstrations, exhibit, and also teach WAGASHI making in the USA and Japan.
