Simply Mochi Debuts at Fabric8 Gallery 3-11-11

Simply Mochi debuts at Fabric8 on Friday, 3-11-11 for their Street Food Fridays!  We worked alongside 3 other street food vendors; mad 4 madeleines, sataysfied, and rockys fry bread.   We served 8 flavors of  mochi on our little mobile cart, with the strawberry cheesecake, pb chocolate,  fresh strawberry chocolate and fresh strawberry red bean being the most popular! 

We had a blast educating people on our modern twists of a mochi while noshing on our neighboring yummy food stands!

Thanks for coming out to support us and hope to see you back out there soon!

How-to workshops to delight and develop each of your 5 senses with local artists, educators, and chefs.   This week is TOUCH and mochi making!   Mochi is a delicious Japanese snack made from pounded rice and filled with tasty tid bits, like sweet adzuki beans or, if your Linda Lo of Simply Mochi, peanut butter and jelly or chocolate!   During this two hour workship Linda will teach you about the cultural history of mochi and lead you through filling and shaping your own to take home.   Making mochi is a very tactile process, and we think it will bring your appreciation for “touch” to a whole new level. We’ll have samples of Linda’s famous mochi to taste and tea to sip, as well.  This is the second of five how-to classes 18 Reason is putting on with Kearny St Workshops and A Sensory Feast.   Each is dedicated to delighting and developing one of your five senses.

We had a great time informing individuals on the history and the process of mochi making.  We thank you 18 Reasons and Kearny Street Workshop for providing this outlet for us to educate others and to show people why we love what we do!
