Japanese from Scratch: Let’s eat Ramen!

4308

Japanese from Scratch is a Japanese language and culture workshop from the Japan Foundation London, suitable for those who are interested in learning Japanese but haven’t started yet, or those who have just started learning.

This month’s workshop theme is: Let’s eat Ramen!

Ramen, a Japanese dish in which noodles are served in broth, has recently experienced a surge of popularity in the UK, with ramen restaurants appearing in cities throughout the country. In this Japanese from Scratch workshop, you can discover why ramen appeals to diners both in Japan and worldwide, and how to get the most out of your ramen-eating experience.

Dr. Barak Kushner, Senior Lecturer in Modern Japanese History at the University of Cambridge and author of Slurp! A Social and Culinary History of Ramen, will introduce the history of ramen in Japan and its special place within Japanese culture.  This will be followed by a Japanese language session focussing on the vocabulary and expressions relating to ramen. Finally, all participants will have the opportunity to put their new language and cultural knowledge to the test, by eating authentic ramen at a restaurant in London.

This workshop is for those who are interested in learning Japanese but haven’t started yet, or those who have just started learning Japanese.  Instructions and explanations will be in English.

The course fee is £5.00. This must be paid in cash on the day of the event – we regret that we are unable to accept credit cards or cheques.

Advance booking is essential. As space is limited we may not be able to take all attendees to eat ramen after the event. Priority will be given to those who sign up first.  
The deadline to apply is November 29th 2013.

Date: 5 December 2013 from 5.45pm
