What you'll do

Irasshaimase!

A hearty Japanese welcome to my unique "dancing on the dough" on-line ramen experience -- the only cooking class on the internet that lets you burn off the calories before you put them back on with a hearty meal.
No noodles? No problem! All you need is a bit of flour and a few other simple ingredients.
Birthday? Anniversary? Book the private option and let’s party! It’s a great way to get together with distant friends and relatives. For private parties I can offer special options such as miso or sesame ramen, udon, or sushi. Feel free to inquire!
Vegetarian and vegan options are available, so please let me know when you book.

* First, we make marinated eggs for the topping.
* Second, we make the dough for the ramen noodles from flour and water.
* Third, we knead the dough — with feet, not hands! We dance on the dough! You’ll need clean feet, a clean floor and a sturdy plastic bag. Show me your best moves as we party to J-Pop and anime hits and create the softest, smoothest dough you've ever touched.
* Fourth, we make a special soup for the ramen, using a secret recipe that I have created just for this online course.
* Finally, we put it all together and sit down to a delicious bowl of piping hot ramen!

"Itadakimasu” (Look it up!)

IMPORTANT NOTE
Each ticket pays for one person to cook.
Each paying customer can cook one or two servings.
Other things to note
I will send you a more detailed list of all ingredients and equipment when you confirm your booking. It will speed things up if you make a few preparations: weigh out the flour, grate the garlic, chop the spring onions.

Hello everyone! I'm Manami. I grew up in a food-loving household and loved cooking with my grandmother and mother. They taught me every kind of Japanese cuisine and made me an enthusiastic cook. I love to cook not only traditional Japanese cuisine (Washoku https://www.nippon.com/en/behind/l00052/) but also creative, innovative dishes -- such as my "dancing on the dough" ramen class, which takes the super-popular ramen noodle dish, spices it up with some special flavors I've developed, and throws in a spot of Japanese-style partying as we dance on the dough to knead it good and proper. I want everyone in the world to enjoy cooking Washoku as much as I do! (Check my in-person experience at https://www.airbnb.jp/experiences/959347.)
This is a great opportunity to learn how to cook some tasty exotic food AT HOME! I look forward to seeing you!

Manami was such a wonderful host and chef! She guided us through making some delicious ramen and in such a fun way. I thought the dancing would be silly but it was so much fun. I have done a few Airbnb cooking experiences and Manami’s was easily my favorite!! Her instructions made it so easy to follow along and understand. My husband and I loved our ramen dinner!

Manami is a great instructor. She made sure everyone is the class kept up. At the end of the class, our ramen looked professional. The class was really fun and she literally had us get up to dance on the dough. It was great!

We loved it! Manami is kind and patient. Making our own dough was much fun! We made a vegetarian option with shitake mushroom and it was super delicious. We are full of this great food. Thank you so much Manami!
