    1. Ann, that was one of the questions raised during the event. Chef said he brought the flour all the way from Japan. Lol! I suppose u should be able to get in Japanese supermarts.

  6. I was actually looking forward to this recipe. It looks simple to make but where can one find the Japanese Mochi flour? Mmm.... must head to the Japanese supermarket or Japanese food section of supermarket to start hunting for this flour.

  7. Shirley, the only rice I've had for dessert was in rice pudding or kheer. This sounds really delicious with the cherry blossom leaves as a wrap -- pretty, too!
