There are a couple of things that inspired this post. The first is our somewhat unhealthy relationship to mochi ice cream. The speed at which we blow through a box of these blissful little bon bons is frightening. The second is Namiko Chen over at Just One Cookbook. I discovered Nami and her incredibly clear homemade mochi tutorial while resarching how it’s done. What I had understood to be a relatively complex process, she made much less intimidating.
