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.

Finally, we will end class by making your choice of delicious chocolate, matcha, or vanilla-glazed baked mochi donuts!

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

Other things to note:

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

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!

Yukiko is a wonderful teacher! She is super prepared and works very hard to ensure no one gets left behind. She is very passionate and knowledgeable, and so friendly. I love that she would verbally say the step we were on an the amount, and she had the ingredients + amounts written on cute signs so we had a visual reminder too. I loved my experience with her and strongly feel that everyone should take this class - making mocha is so much easier than you think!

This was a wonderful class led by Yukiko. She did a great job ensuring everyone was able to keep up while also getting a lot done in the time allotted (3 mochi desserts in 90 minutes!). I really appreciated her stories and presentation of the mochi making. Everything we made was delicious!

Exceeded my expectations tenfold. I was a little hesitant because it was my first online cooking class and I thought it wouldn’t be as interactive and the results wouldn’t be as good, but boy was i wrong. We had the best time and the mochi was amazing. I 100% recommend Yukiko she teaches a great class and is so friendly and helpful.
