Japan Cultural Days: Food Demonstration - Japanese Sweets
Japanese Pastry Chefs Motohiro Inaba and Rio Asano have traveled the world working in sweets and pastry shops. Taking what they learned, Inaba and Asano opened their own sweet shop in Tokyo called Wagashi Asobi, where they combine modern flavors with traditional Japanese recipes. At the DIA, they demonstrate a simple, handmade dessert “chick” that the audience can also make. The demonstration will be accompanied by a performance by members of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra Civic Youth Ensemble.
