It's almost time for cherry blossom season in Tokyo
It's almost cherry blossom season in Tokyo.
According to the weather report, cherry blossoms will bloom in March 23rd. It's about a week earlier than the average years.
This is my annual work to bake sakura cookies.
Subtle saltness of cherry blossom flavor goes with sweet butterfly crust and little bitter matcha flavor.
I like to share the cooking with my friends and cooking class guests who came from over the world.
Many people are impressed the flavor of sakura, cherry blossoms and the taste never experienced.
Salt cured cherry blossom is used for the cookie.
Soak them in water to remove the salt, then use for baking, mochi sweets and sometime cooking, such as sushi and seafood dishes.
The flavor produces spring freshness. I've been looking forward to bake the sakura cookies.
