One of our most popular Japanese cooking classes, Soba making is back with Asako Nonaka, the special guest chef from Japan!
Soba is a traditional Japanese food that has been eaten for ages. It’s delicious and can be found in many Japanese restaurants in New York, but did you know that soba noodles have many health benefits? Eating these buckwheat noodles will help you recover from fatigue and prevent your skin from aging too quickly. Some even believe that if you eat soba, you will live longer!
In this workshop led by instructor Asako Nonaka, you will learn about, cook, and eat soba. First, she will demonstrate how to make soba from buckwheat flour. After making and eating your own soba noodles, you can try some snacks made of buckwheat flour. These are specially homemade by the instructor.
