Brimming with unearthly delights, this book tantalises the senses while presenting the rich culture of Japanese sweets (‘wagashi’) through the work of the world-renowned confection expert, Chikara Mizukami. As a modern ‘wagashi’ master, his active role in a wide range of interests is focused not just in Japan or at Ikkoan, his shop in Tokyo. Mizukami has undertaken many collaborations with international chocolate companies and patisserie houses, and performed demonstrations and lectured internationally as well. Included are 72 gorgeously rendered confections that trace a subtle arc through the seasons, plus explanations about flavours, interpretations, and vocabulary.
