Japanese desserts “Wagashi” (和菓子) has a delicate beauty and that reminds the Japanese of the passing of the four seasons. Wagashi are often inspired from nature, such as flowers, fruits, and leaves. We include seasonal ingredients such as cherry blossom flowers in the springtime, and chestnuts in autumn. Don't forget to enjoy these delights with a cup of Japanese green tea, Matcha or Sencha!
What is Anko?
Anko (sweet Azuki red bean paste) is a key ingredient that is commonly used in Japanese desserts. It is usually prepared by boiling Azuki beans and then sweetening the paste with sugar. Other varieties of sweet pastes includes Shiroan (White Anko) that is mostly made from white kidney beans, and Kurian (Chestnut Anko) made from chestnuts. They are all called "Anko" and all types of Anko are used in many delicious Japanese sweets such as Anmitsu, Daifuku, Dango, Dorayaki, Zenzai, Taiyaki, and Yokan... and the list goes on!
