Cooking Class - Udon Noodles Two Ways

Knead, roll and cut udon noodles into two Japanese specialties.

With a culinary education that took root early in her mother’s home, Chef Kaori’s cooking pedigree dates back two generations to her grandmother’s ramen shop in Fukushima, Japan. Explore authentic Japanese cuisine and all the ingredients and techniques to preparing it in your kitchen.

Master the technique to preparing authentic homemade udon noodles from scratch, from mixing the dough, to boiling for the correct consistency, and finally combining them with other ingredients to create two iconic Japanese delicacies. Create a stock and deep-fry prawns for a tempura udon soup and select seasonal vegetables to sauté in a delicate yaki-udon. Chef Kaori will close the class with a striking green tea crème brulée.

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

Chef Kaori was a really fun teacher. She is very knowledgeable of asian cuisine and has a passion for cooking. She has taught all ages of students including kids. I really enjoyed her Udon noodles soup that we made from scratch. The green tea creme brulee was also delicious.
