Mochi is a sweet, soft rice ball dessert that you can make with different fillings, such as peanut butter or ice cream. Learn to make this popular Asian dessert that is naturally vegan and gluten-free. During the 2-hour hands-on class, you will learn fool-proof techniques to create mochi with peanut butter as the filling, but the same technique can be applied for other fillings such as ice cream, red bean paste, or fresh mango! This mochi recipe stays fresh on the counter for a few days or can be frozen. Perfect dessert to make for dinner parties! Here's the exact flow of the class. You will first learn how to make the mochi dough from scratch. For the sake of the class, you will learn the shortcut of using the microwave to cook the dough perfectly. In the recipe, it explains the traditional way of steaming the dough which takes much longer. I will also show you tips on how to steam the dough at home. Then you will learn tips-and-tricks of how to prepare the filling so it guarantees success at home. The class will feature peanut butter as the filling but similar technique can be used for other fillings. We will discuss what fillings might interest you and how to best approach that. Lastly, I will share fool-proof technique from my family on how to wrap a mochi that makes this a fun cooking experience for people of all ages!
