Tea + Wagashi with Saki Fukuda
We are very excited to have wagashi artist, Saki Fukuda, at our shop for the final weekend on March 11 and March 12 for Tea + Wagashi.
Growing up in Nagasaki, Japan, Saki Fukuda apprenticed with traditional Japanese confectionary shop Kameya Yoshinaga in Kyoto for three years. Wagashi (Japanese traditional confectionary) is her passion, and when Saki moved to Vancouver 3 years ago she took a position at Yuwa Japanese Restaurant, where she has been presenting wagashi and cooking traditional Japanese foods with their inspiring team since.
Saki's hand made wagashi is always elegant, attentively made, and rooted in tradition and seasonality. I always think how fortunate we are to have her in Vancouver.
