The Art of Homemade Soba Noodles
Fresh soba noodles are a simple Japanese delicacy that you can make at home. With Sonoko Sakai, learn how to make and serve traditional hand-rolled and cut Nihachi style soba, using a blend of fresh, stone ground buckwheat and wheat flours. In this two-hour class you will prepare and taste the soba two ways, as a soba salad with market fresh vegetables, and in a hot broth with a medley of mushrooms and fall vegetables. Students will take home their own batch of fresh noodles. ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR Sonoko Sakai is a cooking teacher and author of Rice Craft (Chronicle Books) based in Los Angeles.
