Ramen & Beyond with Corinne Trang

  • 6:00pm
  • 37b north front street, kingston, ny 12401

When people think ramen they think of the Japanese soup, but ramen is actually based on the Chinese egg noodle.  After World War II, fueled by a rice shortage in Japan and the subsequent influx of cheap wheat which the US flooded into the Japanese market, in combination with a newfound taste for wheat noodles by Japanese troops returning from China, the ramen noodle as we now know it came into existence as a convenience food, hence instant ramen.

In this workshop we’ll explore three different recipes that incorporate the ramen noodle–all of which are classic.  On the menu: Ramen in Pork Broth with Crispy Pork Belly, Egg & Bok Choy, Stir-fried Ramen with Baby Shrimp & Veggies and Twice Cooked Crispy Ramen Cakes with Braised Beef & Broccoli.  Chef Trang is one of our most rigorous instructors so come prepared to work!

$90 per student includes 3hr workshop and recipes PLUS eat-what-you-make!
