Activity details

① Introduction
② Lecture on Dango History and Matcha Nutrition Facts
③ How to Make Matcha Dango
Dango is basically made in two flavors: matcha green and rice flour dumpling white.
We will decorate our skewered dango in two different versions:
- Traditional mitarashi (soy glaze)
- Matcha butter cream
If you have difficulty to find the ingredients for the second type, you can make a third version instead:
- Black honey roasted soybean flour
④ How to Make Matcha Latte
At the end, she will show you how to make matcha latte, the perfect drink to match with Japanese Sweets.
Matcha is a type of powdered green tea that, besides Tea Ceremony (sadō), is largely used as ingredient in both Japanese and Western confectionery.
