What You’ll Love About ‘Mochi Magic’
Mochi — the traditional Japanese treat made of chewy rice dough — is a popular and versatile vehicle for all kinds of sweet and savory fillings, and can easily be molded into a variety of shapes and flavors!
Food writer Kaori Becker’s easy-to-follow techniques for creating and cooking with mochi deliver the perfect mix of fun and tradition. Each colorful page brims with recipes for hand-pounded, steamed, and modern microwave mochi; fillings like homemade bean paste, matcha cream cheese, rosewater, Nutella, black sesame, Oreo Cream Cheese, and Japanese plum wine.
Mochi Magic also features mochi-focused goodies like Bacon-Wrapped Mochi, traditional Ozoni Soup, baked mochi treats (mochi brownies, waffles, and more!); and inspiration for shaping irresistibly charming mochi flowers, baby chicks, pandas, and more. There is something for all mochi lovers here, both traditional and modern!
You can also pre-order the book here. It will make a great gift for anyone who is into baking or mochi making!
