Ramen Workshop at Foodstory

Had lunch with my friend @marianthefoodie at Foodstory in Los Angeles.  Although it's not a restaurant, it's a unique Japanese cooking experience, taught by founder Yoko Isassi.  


Located in a cool Downtown LA loft, it's a place to learn about Japanese cuisine, culture and most importantly, food stories.  Let me explain, not only does Yoko teach Japanese cuisine but also the stories that go along with the food.  This is a hands-on workshop for those wanting to learn authentic Japanese food.  Not only will you go home with a better understanding of Japanese cuisine and culture, but you learn dishes to amaze your friends and family at home. 

Today, Yoko wasn't teaching,
but prepared a ramen lunch for us
and we shared food stories.

Homemade ramen noodles
with a seasoned egg and tomatoes

Most restaurants don't season
their eggs, this was a treat.

A really good broth,
with a perfectly cooked pork belly
and a homemade garlic oil.

This by itself should be a reason
to take a class at Foodstory.

Lunch is Served!

Yes, it's as good as it looks

We all have food stories and is one thing that brings people together.  Not only does Yoko teaches you how to prepare dishes, but also proper etiquette in serving and dining at the table.  Japanese food won't be the same again...

Besides ramen, other workshops include:

The Art of Japanese Tea Ceremony
Traditional Sweets and Tea
Japanese Knife Skills Workshop
Japanese Dining Etiquette Workshop
Traditional Udon Making
Homemade Sushi
Kids Lunch

NOTE:  Please check the Foodstory website for upcoming workshops and events.

Makes for great team building activities, birthday celebrations,
date night, family activities, and special events!
