Class content
Have fun making 2 chestnut-themed wagashi, a manjū and a kanoko. The manjū is made with an entire chestnut wrapped in white bean paste and a flour casing. It’s then baked and coated with egg yolk for a shiny coat. The kanoko is made of smooth bean paste wrapped with white bean paste, covered with pieces of stewed sweet golden chestnut, and glossed with agar-agar.
