Please join us for our Nakayoshi Gathering on Saturday, December 2 to start the holidays with making Japanese mochi. The event starts at 1:00pm at the JACL Hall in Monterey.
Mochi is a Japanese rice cake made of mochigome, a short-grain japonica glutinous rice and sometimes other ingredients such as water, sugar, and cornstarch. The steamed rice is pounded into a paste and molded into the desired shape. We will provide you with the mochi and the goodies you will use to make your own treat. Feel free to bring your own ingredient to “spice it up”.
Bring the whole family to enjoy this event.
