End Year Cooking Party

One of my favorite food in Japan has been the soba noodle…. And after this party each time I'll eat it again I'll remember the work is behind of that dish…
This was one of the most amazing moments I experimented here. Since the day before of the party when I went with Hayasaka-san to buy the ingredients I was really surprised with the care dedicated by him to make a great day for us… We went in several places before to find that option he thought to be the best one of the soba ku (pounder for the soba)…
At the end of the shop time, I convinced Hayasaka-san that wasn’t necessary to bring the things at that time (around 11pm) to the lab and we could do that in the following day early… Then in next day as I stayed with some ingredient I decided to arrive early than the scheduled time… but he was already there when I arrived…
It was like a prelude of the great day we was going to have…
Ingredients and the instrumentations for high precision and quality was checked out… last review on the experimental plan done and then… we started first with a demonstration of the master of soba, Kaneko-san about how to make that…
