Okashimaru - What You See Then
|out of print
Japanese sweets are like memories condensed in a small universe, a landscape of emotions experienced through sight and taste. Based in Kyoto, Sayoko Sugiyama puts this invisible sensibility into a very special form of confectionary, a modern twist in an otherwise rather traditional world. This book presents 25 Japanese sweets together with short, enlightening texts that describe each meticulously crafted confectionary, detailing aspects such as colour, ingredients, season, origin, and the memories and particular enjoyment they evoke.
