Strawberry Daifuku (Strawberry Mochi)
MARCH 20, 2012
Daifuku is a popular traditional Japanese sweet; it is soft mochi with anko (sweet red bean paste) stuffing. There are many varieties of Daifuku, but it’s the same soft mochi exterior with different stuffing. During the spring time, Japanese confectionery shops sells a seasonal Daifuku with a whole strawberry as the filling, called Strawberry Daifuku (Ichigo Daifuku in Japanese). The combination of fresh soft mochi, sweet anko, and juicy and tart strawberry is a match made in heaven.
Today I’m beyond excited to announce that my Strawberry Daifuku recipe is being featured on the spring issue of Flavour Fiesta Magazine!
Divya is the author/cook/baker/photographer behind Flavour Fiesta and she issues beautiful quarterly online magazine about food and her recipes with beautiful food photography. Looking at her blog and how professionally it’s laid out, it’s hard to tell that Divya’s blog just had its first blogiversary this month. I’ve been closely following her for about half a year and I continue to grow my admiration toward her and her blog. Her strong dedication to improve what she does amazes me and I wish I had similar artistic talents.
Visiting her blog over the past few months, I could recognize her hard-working ethics toward her blog, especially with the food photography. I think I already work very hard on my blog consistently thinking of ways to improve. But I learned that she works even harder than I do after working this project with her. Not only she’s very detailed and thorough at what she does, but she’s also a generous person to kindly share her advice and tips for my food photography when I needed some help to improve. Her food is always so delightfully presented; the colors, flavors and textures always catch my eye and I can already taste the food simply by looking at her photos.
I’m so truly happy for her that this spring issue is already the third release of her online magazines and wish her continued success. It was really pleasure to work with such a creative and talented blogger and I fondly cherish my experience working with her.
Now please prepare a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy Divya’s Flavour Fiesta Magazine!
