CNY Japanese Treats 1 Shermay's Cooking School

Akemashite Omedetougozaimasu(Happy New Year!)
This is the greeting we exchange on New Year's day that is 1st of January in Japan.
We have to finish shopping and spring cleaning by New Year's eve.
Also,we prepare new year's dish by then and hardly cook during new year as this is the time we celebrate all together and also the time for house wives to take some leave from continuous endless domestic work.
It's time for gathering, sharing,wishing for health,prosperity, longevity.
Isn't it very similar to CNY?
I will be teaching treats for CNY at Shermay's Cooking Schoolon 16th January 2011(Sun) ;
White chocolate and matcha green tea marble cake.

Tarte aux Ananas
A sweet four-layer(Tart Base,almond cream,pinepapple jam and sauteed pineapple) pastry tart with almond cream & sautéed pineapple.
Double Layer Mandarin Orange Jelly
Two-layer jelly of Japanese mandarin orange (Mikan) juice and light creamy milk.
This is going to be fast & easy yet very refreshing & tasty. A fuss free two layer jelly.

Houji Cha Cookies
Butter cookies with Japanese roasted green tea.The sugar surface represents the thin ice of winter, giving way for the rejuvenated spring earth.
As for the bonus recipes(for you to try out at home)peanuts butter and jelly square also you'll take home the recipe for White & Black Sesame Tuilles,lacy caramelized thin cookies with white & black sesame seeds.

I am looking forward to seeing you and greeting you at Shermay's cooking school by saying
"Gong Xi Fa Cai"
