Wagashi and Japanese sweets recipes 2012/12/14 21:05
Hi, I'm currently studying patisserie at the moment and my dream is to eventually move to Japan and learn how to make their traditional sweets like Wagashi.
So while I'm learning how to make cakes and sweets ( while studying Japanese at home) I would very much like to learn how to make wagashi and other Japanese sweets. I've managed to find a few websites but it is very limited online so I was wondering if anyone here know of other sites or books i might have missed? Would really appreciate your help.
Thanks in advance

I think most wagashi patisserie have secret recipes and taught only in-house. There is ofcourse a school for that too but I 've never heard someone makes their own.

But check this video . A german girl wagashi patisserie in training! On this video, they are saying it takes 12 years to master, and she's been in Japan for 4 years.

Matsue is a wagashi hotspot with workshops available, but I have yet to try out the workshops myself. This blog written by Japanese students in English provides some recipes and photos of the process, as well as cultural background.

Have you ever eaten wagashi? They really don't taste very good, although they look pretty.

If you are good at Japanese, then "Cookpad" is the best way to see. It's like a wikipedia of all kinds of recipes mainly by housewives. Lots of housewives see the site in many ways.
For example, "Wagashi" is written in Japanese as "aَq" then put the words onto the blank to go, 9,242 recipes are the results.
Below is a link,

have a nice cooking!
