~with Japanese Noodle Master Yumi Nagao~
Sat. Dec. 9, 1:00 – 4:00pm
Soba Making

Cost: $90, advance registration required.

Each participant will receive a free handmade ceramic soba noodle cup made by members of The Potters’ Studio!

In this demo, Yumi will demonstrate the making of nihachi soba (buckwheat) noodles (from scratch). One of the "humble jewels" of Japanese cooking is the soba noodle. Originating during the Edo period (1600s-1800s) in Japan, soba noodle shops sprang up in the busy and energetic neighborhoods of Tokyo. Good handmade soba is more than just food; it's an art form. Finding authentic handmade soba noodles in the United States is very difficult.

Note: Buckwheat can be made into flour but it is not in the same family as wheat. Some people may be allergic to buckwheat.

The first soba noodles Yumi tasted were made by her grandmother who always made fresh soba noodles when the family would gather. Yumi started crafting soba about 10 years ago after her father passed away. She had a sense that her father would show her the path. Yumi reached out to her aunt, a soba noodle restaurant owner in Nagano, Japan (the home of soba) and learned all about soba noodle making.

Come learn the art and craft of making soba noodles!
