Shrimp crackers, rice puffs, and Japan’s most popular biscuits are forms of senbei, or Japanese rice crackers. You can see how senbei are made and even toast your own at Kanazawa Saisho, a directly managed confectionery shop with a hundred years of history in Hokuriku.
Use a specially designed small furnace, toast your rice crackers to perfect crispness while you enjoy the aroma, then eat it fresh off the grill or save it for your trip home; rice crackers have a long shelf life!
Flipping is difficult to master, as uneven cooking can cause the cracker to curl up or burn. Will you accept the challenge of this tricky toasting?
