The German demonstration featured a flaming punch with rum, wine, and space. The Japanese demonstration was an interactive mochi-making, a sweet rice cake, served with ozoni soup. After the demonstrations all joined at the table for food tasting from both cultures and a conversation about family meals. During the tasting presenters shared few cultural facts as well.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><div class="image-insert-image "><img alt="" class="image-original_image" src="http://www.wbez.org/system/files/styles/original_image/llo/insert-images/CCA-webstory_3.JPG" title="" /></div><p>Recorded live on Mach 9, 2013 at DANK-HAUS.</p></p> Sat, 09 Mar 2013 14:38:00 -0600 http://www.wbez.org/series/chicago-amplified/heritage-matters-food-fire-family-106934
