Talk & Tasting

Wednesday, April 17, 6:30 PM

SOLD OUT. We regret that there will not be a wait list for this event.

Japanese soba noodles require a highly skilled hand; the chef must even take into account factors like humidity and room temperature before preparing the buckwheat flour dough and hand-cutting the noodles. Soba noodle chef Shuichi Kotani, Founder & CEO of Worldwide-Soba, Inc., takes pride in making artisanal fresh soba from scratch. At this talk, Kotani divulges his secrets for making authentic soba, gives tips on how to best enjoy this nutrient-dense noodle and gives an on-stage noodle-making demonstration.

Followed by a fresh soba tasting reception. This program will be presented in Japanese with consecutive interpretation in English.

Tickets: $21/$17 members, seniors & students
