Wagashi (Japanese: 和菓子) is a general term applied to different types of Japanese snacks, especially sweet ones made of sticky rice, fruits, etc. served in Japanese tea ceremonies. Wagashi is a type of snack made from all natural, plant based ingredients that influences all five senses. They are commonly named from natural beauties and a word from ancient literatures. Typical ingredients include glutinous rice, chestnuts, sweet potato paste and sesame seeds. Sophisticated sweets made from beans and agar-agar are often in the shape of seasonal objects. Inspiration for some new MG recipes?
