Cooking Class - Soba Noodles and Tempura

11 reviews

Enjoy the juxtaposition of noodles and crispy vegetables in this light meal.

Master the preparation of buckwheat noodles, a gluten-free staple of most Japanese diets. You will learn the correct cooking and rinsing techniques as well as a recipe for a savory dipping sauce. Chef Motoko will also share her secret for frying light-as-air tempura.

Chef Motoko’s recipes are based around the Japanese philosophy of soshoku, or frugal meal. Traditionally made up of a soup, a side dish and rice, this style of eating has become the norm in most Japanese households due to its health benefits.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.
