Mochi is one of Japan’s most well-loved confections – and best-kept secrets. It’s created by steaming and pounding sticky rice until it gains a beautiful, soft elasticity. This outer layer is then wrapped around velvety smooth centres like ice cream and ganache, creating the contrast of textures that makes eating this artisan Japanese confection such an unforgettable joy.
The name Tsuki is inspired by ancient Japanese folklore, which tells of a rabbit that sacrifices himself to honour a God. As a reward for his selflessness, and as a symbol of honour and integrity, the God restores the rabbit to life and makes an impression of his body on the moon – pounding the ingredients for mochi.
Our mochi are made in a factory that handles nuts, seeds, sesame, peanuts, egg, dairy, gluten, soya and milk, and although every effort is made to separate them, we cannot guarantee they are free from these allergens.
