Dear members,


This is a special event that our member DC Palter and his wife notified me and I'm very excited! Thank you very much, DC Palter and Satsuki-san!!!


"Japanese traditional candies called “higashi” have a long tradition as an integral part of tea ceremony.  The colorful candies are made by hand of superfine wasanbon sugar in a wooden mold.  The molds themselves can be works of art, and are carved from aged cherry wood.

The Ichihara studio in Matsuyama (Shikoku) is one of the few remaining craftsmen of these molds.  Ayumi is making a special visit to Los Angeles for a series of workshops in higashi candy making.  Using the molds, candy making is simple and fun, and you’ll leave not only with an appreciation for this unique art, but a tray of candies to share with your friends."

Wasanbon is a special kind of sugar used for delicate Japanese sweets to bring subtle sweetness:­

"Wasanbon (和三盆) is a fine-grained Japanese sugar, traditionally made in the Shikoku­ prefectures Tokushima­ andKagawa­. The sugar is often used for Japanese sweets (wagashi). The sugar is made from thin sugarcane­ plants grown locally in Shikoku, called taketō (竹糖) or chikusha (竹蔗)."
