Online Noodle Class on "Toshikoshi Soba" - buckwheat noodles traditionally eaten on a New Year's Eve in Japan, and other noodle options for winter holidays
An imagery yet so important threshold dividing the current and the coming years, is a special time for every culture usually accompanied by specific festive traditions and foods eaten during this period.
New hopes, new wishes, new dreams, new commitments – to celebrate them, throughout history different cultures have had their special culinary traditions related to what people do and eat on a New Year’s Eve and the first day of the new year.
One might name such customs as eating grapes in Spain, pomegranates in Turkey, Olivier salad in Russia, or buckwheat Soba noodles in Japan.
Whether for dine-in, takeaway, delivery or as DIY meal kits, presenting your customers with an opportunity to experience Japan through this unique culinary tradition may serve as a good seasonal offering for your food business.
Such authentic buckwheat Soba can be made from scratch on different models of Yamato noodle machines (depending on the ratio of buckwheat flour in dough, which can range from as little as 20-30% to 100% when noodles are completely made from buckwheat).
However gradual its development may sometimes be, any tradition has a beginning – even those we now consider so ancient that we can hardly locate a point in history to pin its inception on did start at some time in the past.
So, why, for a change, not come up with a new one? Like eating a special dish with noodles popular in your area on New Year!?
New year pasta? Sure! New year ramen with toppings made from your local special ingredients? Why not!…
