Announcing my Spring 2018 Quest:
TRY ALL THE SAKURA!
It’s my goal to try as many sakura (or cherry blossom) flavored things as possible! This will include packaged foods I find at my local grocery stores, H Mart, Lotte Mart, Hana, etc. as well as (hopefully) some local creations. Drinks, snacks, desserts- maybe I’ll even find a savory meal featuring sakura?? Of course I’ll also be attending DC’s Cherry Blossom Festival a.k.a. Sakura Matsuri!
Cherry blossoms are so important to DC, yet most locals and tourists ignore this seasonal flavor! The flavor of sakura is milder and, as you would imagine, more floral than the flavor of cherries themselves. It’s hard to describe and I’ve only tried it a few times, so this year it’s my goal to taste it in every form.
I’m in the research phase right now, but look for my Sakura food posts starting in April. I’m really excited! Please send me all your suggestions too 🙂
