A hands on cooking class culminating in a lunch served with wine and beer.

Making Asian noodles from scratch is fun. And it is easier than you may think. Continuing our series on making Asian noodles, this class focuses on non-pulled noodles (i.e. through a pasta machine), which is a staple in many homes. Chewy rice cakes, bouncy mung bean cakes, and hand-formed torn noodles. You will be making the dough for the noodles from scratch, and cooking up dishes to enjoy with them.
