Sukiyaki Udon Cooking Class with Mac and Nahoko

Following the sell-out success of their previous online cooking classes, Maction Planet is proud to announce a new Online Interactive Sukiyaki Udon Cooking Class and Talk Show on 15 November 2020 featuring Mac, Founder and Lead Guide of Maction Planet, and Nahoko from At Home with Nahoko Cooking Classes.

On 15 November 2020 (JST), Mac and Nahoko will hold a very special online Sukiyaki Udon cooking class. Together, they will teach you how to make Sukiyaki Udon using ingredients you can easily obtain where you live.

What is Sukiyaki Udon?

After eating sukiyaki in a restaurant in Japan, it is customary to add udon to the pot to polish off the meal. It’s so delicious that we wanted to teach you how to make this as your main dish!

Sukiyaki is a dish of meat and vegetables prepared nabemono – one-pot style. Typically eaten in restaurants, it is tough to make overseas due to the unavailability of some key ingredients. We will show you how to make this dish with ingredients commonly found where you are.

Udon is one of Japan’s favourite noodle types. One of the highlights of this class will be learning how to make udon FROM SCRATCH!

Using these skills you can actually make a number of variations! If you join our Katsu Curry cooking class on 11 October then you can combine your Japanese Curry skills with your newly-learnt udon skills to create Curry Udon – one of our ultimate comfort foods and a wonderful addition to your culinary repertoire as winter approaches!

Entertaining and Educational

Nahoko started Japanese cooking classes for foreign travellers to Tokyo three years ago, and since then has taught over 250 students from all over the world. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, she has recently switched to hosting online classes via Zoom which have proven to be extremely popular.

Mac will talk about Japanese food culture and share many stories about life in Japan, bringing his expertise on Japanese culture, history, food and drink, baseball, sumo, music… As Nahoko says, “Even I am constantly learning from him and I am from Japan!”

This is an interactive class, different from anything on Instagram Live or YouTube. You will be able to converse with Mac and Nahoko during the class. You can ask us questions about Japan and your cooking during the class. All of the participants can show each other their Sukiyaki Udon. We will all be saying ‘itadakimasu‘ and eating our Sukiyaki Udon at the same time.

The prior classes have proven extremely popular. Here is a Tripadvisor review from Karen in London, UK, who joined our Chirashi Sushi cooking class on 6 September:
