This was a great class, Akemi is very passionate about Japanese food and shared the background of the ingredients and the dish. It was a very relaxed class and went along at a nice pace. The end result was delicious, even though its common in Japan to eat the noodles and leave the soup, this recipe is too good not to finish it all!
