Experience Details
During this handmade udon cooking class, you’ll transform a mixture of flour and water into delicious, chewy udon noodles. First, we will meet at Hikifune Station and walk to our restored traditional Japanese house (there is even a tatami room). Then, we’ll roll up our sleeves and get started. After an explanation of our cooking class, we’ll start to prepare udon from scratch. Udon can be served either hot or cold, so it is perfect for all seasons, winter or summer. You will also learn how to make the classic Japanese rolled omelet, tamagoyaki. It is often said that you can tell the skill of a home cook just by trying their tamagoyaki. We will also make everyone’s favorite: crunchy tempura. A battered and deep-fried dish, tempura is surprisingly light and crisp, and pairs great with udon noodles. Finally, after a delicious meal, we will write your name in Japanese kanji on a special uchiwa fan, for you to take home. Our cooking classes use seasonal ingredients and recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. We make sure that these are all accessible recipes that you can recreate at home, no matter where in the world you live. We love to share stories about traveling abroad, and look forward to chatting with you and enjoying a fun meal!
