Roll up your sleeves and dig into this fun cooking experience with a professional chef. Soba noodles are a wide-spread Japanese staple that you can find at mom-and-pop shops offering a quick and filling bowl for salarymen on their commute, as well as high-end restaurants, and on kitchen tables of Japanese homes. Soba is also a staple of the Japanese New Year dinner table, called “toshikoshi soba,” which symbolizes long life!
If you are hitting Tokyo, make sure to take the best out of your trip and wholeheartedly explore Japanese food. Be sure to try some hands-on workshops and activities for a well-rounded travel experience. This cooking class is definitely one such experience to add to your bucket list.
Your instructor is a professional Japanese soba chef, no less, an experienced teacher for this cooking class. You’ll be provided with buckwheat flour, all the essential tools, and careful guidance. Learn how to knead your noodles, get insightful tips and tricks to making a dough with the perfect texture, then roll them out paper-thin. Try your hand at the art and enjoy the oddly-satisfying feeling of the wide-bladed soba kiri knife cutting into the dough. Leave the kitchen knowing you’ve mastered the simple, yet delicate, process of making soba noodles.
At this point, you’ve earned yourself a delicious soba-based lunch. Admire your creation served on a bamboo mat. Dip a few strands of soba into mentsuyu soup base and savor the characteristic taste of buckwheat noodles. The mild flavor of soba shines through! You’ll also be served crunchy tempura, a perfect match for soba noodles!
