We will start class by making mochi filled with red bean (or nutella if you prefer). Also filled with strawberry (or your choice of fresh fruit, this is optional).

Second, we will make mochi ice cream, which you can eat or freeze and enjoy later on.

You will get to eat fresh and tasty mochi, and learn how to easily make delicious mochi for your family and friends.

I have always been passionate about teaching guests how to make delicious dishes from my Japanese heritage. I come from Fukushima, Japan and learned how to cook traditional Japanese meals and desserts from my mother. I learned how to make mochi many years ago with my friends, and have been making it for more than 20 years.

I am excited to share our mochi-making skills with you, and delighted to keep this tradition alive. We are both very passionate about mochi and now teach classes online. I do mochi online team building for Facebook, Google, and other companies throughout the Bay Area. Please contact me to book a team building event

Our team had so much fun in this class. The class moved at a quick pace but everyone was able to keep up and it was so great that we learned how to make 3 different kind of mochi desserts in just 90 minutes. Yukiko made sure to check in on everyone and answered questions about customizations and changes on the fly. Highly recommend the class to anyone who loves cooking or making desserts or anyone who loves mochi, or just wants to try different foods.

Great experience and family activity. Advanced ingredients prep and set up is a must and will make the experience go smoother. Also be prepared to have one person helping to wash bowls, spatulas..etc in between making of different treats.

This was a great experience! Yukiko is a terrific host and teacher. She can walked us through every step and made all of the recipes easy. We really enjoyed learning how to make the mochi ice cream balls and regular, filled mochi - but the mochi donuts were especially a revelation! We doubled the recipe and still ate them all in about 5 minutes. We will be buying more special flour soon to make more! Highly recommend!

Yukiko is the most adorable person ever! I love her storytelling, giving us insight to her personal love of mochi. The class was well organized and the mochi, mochi ice cream, and donuts were all delicious. Highly recommended!
