The Japanese specialize in raising the ordinary to art, whether in making tea, writing characters or… making soba. Soba making is a very personal art, with infinite variables. The making of this humble noodle hides many precise steps to follow, in order to achieve the perfect square soba of the soba master. Making soba by hand could be described as a dance, with an intimate relationship between the maker, the ingredients and the tools.
So why not trying your hands at it? Your host will demonstrate the art of making these Japanese buckwheat noodles in your accommodation and bring their expertise and passion to your dining.
