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!
