  • Workshop #1: Variation around mochi

Charlotte will explain to you the origins, history, uses and variations of this basic component of wagashi and will share with you the manufacturing techniques of Japanese pastry chefs as she learned them during her training in Japan. You will also witness the preparation of a Uirô with its steam cooking and its modeling to become a Jônamagashi, these wagashi intended for the tea ceremony.

  • Workshop #3: Introduction to Jônamagashi, the yôkan

The art of wagashi is at the crossroads of many other traditional Japanese disciplines. They influence the shapes and colors and even the name of the pastries. The simplest and oldest example is yôkan, which will be prepared live. And to broaden the spectrum of Jônamagashi, a small demonstration of nerikiri shaping using traditional tools will also be carried out!
