Class Experience

Students will learn how to make a Japanese dessert of mochi using a microwave. Students will learn the significance of mochi in Japanese food culture. 
Students are expected to prepare for class by having ready all supplies/ingredients on a workspace prior to class starting.
SUPPLIES/INGREDIENTS LIST: FOR THE MOCHI * Mochiko (sweet rice flour) - Sample item here: * Granulated sugar * Water * Anko (sweetened red bean paste) - Sample item here: * Kinako (roasted soybean flour) - Sample item here: * Corn starch * Microwave safe bowl * 1/2 cup measuring cup * Plates, spoons, butter knife * paper towel or hand towel Thank you in advance for preparing the necessary supplies and ingredients for this class. Some items may be difficult to source in your local area, so I recommend looking through the list well in advance to allow time for ordering online as needed. If you cannot source some ingredients, it's okay, please just pick the closest substitution. I understand the costs can add up, especially for a one-time class, but some condiments are staples in Japanese cooking, and are great to have on hand, or for upcoming Ai Sensei's Japanese Kitchen classes.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
NO-STOVE RECIPES: Recipes are meant to be kid-friendly and will not use a stove. 
However, knives and microwaves will be used. 

KNIVES: A butterknife is perfectly fine for this lesson, since we will be only cutting soft items. 

MICROWAVE: Please be available to help your child take out hot items from the microwave. This part can be especially dangerous if the microwave is located above the child's height.

ALLERGIES: Parents are responsible for checking all ingredients for any allergens related to your child, if any. Some allergens included in this class's recipe may include, but not limited to: SOY.
We will read aloud the Japanese story "Omochi No Kimochi" (teacher will translate into English), a story told from the viewpoint of a mochi, who is sick and tired of being pounded and stretched and runs away in search of freedom!
