                  Should I close my eyes too when cutting the noodles?

                        Even ancient a Japanese cuisine master used an Italian word to describe texture and tenderness of the pasta. The word was "Al Dente", which means "To the tooth" suggesting the pasta is hard enough to get bitten, and not soft and creamy that basically melts in your mouth.

                                      The smell of the buckwheat flour puts me off making these myself.

                                          I appreciate the effort that went into the noodle, but that serving on the end... A tiny bit of raw scallion and ginger and plain ol noodles?

                                              I have great respect for the Japanese.. Always inspirational. in this fast paced world where everything just tumbles along, they’ll tell you that nothing should be rushed. It’ll take you over 10 years to master the art of making soba noodles, probably half a lifetime to master the sushi.. everything is steeped in rich tradition and culture, executed with perfection.

                                                One of those 10 dimensions is sound. You can hear it on his hands the texture getting closer to how he wants it. 😉

                                                      I can't eat wheat, and I could never find pre-prepared soba noodles without some wheat flour... So, the first time I made them, myself, was around 8 years ago. I didn't go by a recipe, or anything, so I had no idea what I was in for. Thought they'd be like basically any other noodle that you'd make. 😒

                                                      Oh my gosh. They are so, so *difficult* to shape and cut, but unbelievably flavourful, chewy, and so satisfying.

                                                      Pros: they don't take a huge amount of time to make, they're the best soba noodles you'll ever have, and you'll want to try them unadulterated, at least once.

                                                      Cons: there is no easy way to make them, there is no non-messy way to make them, and you'll have a hard time going back. 😅

                                                      It's so worth it, a couple times per year, though. Divine, chewy, nutty, and the best zaru soba you'll ever have. ♥️

                                                      Now I want some. 😩
