Chilled Ramen for Summer

Chilled Ramen for Summer

Hiyashi Chuka

Kanako Koizumi is a chef, instructor, and author specializing in authentic Japanese home cooking.  A native of Akita, Japan, her passion is bringing people together and making them happy through everyday Japanese cooking and dining.  Kanako has been teaching cooking classes for over 10 years, sharing the ingredients, recipes and techniques that form a cornerstone of Japanese life.  We are excited to welcome Kanako back for another class at Hot Stove Society.

In Japan, there’s nothing more seasonal than Hiyashi Chuka in the summertime.  In fact, towards the end of Tsuyu (Japan’s rainy season), you start seeing banners flapping in front of local eateries that read ‘Hiyashi Chuka is now available.’  That means: ‘summer is here and if you don’t eat Hiyashi Chuka it will be gone before you know it!’

Hiyashi Chuka is a dish of chilled ramen noodles with colorful toppings such as shredded vegetables, egg crepes and a variety of meats served with a refreshing dressing or tare sauce.  The beautiful presentation and bright flavors of this dish will stimulate your taste buds even on the hottest summer day.

Kanako will show you how easy it is to make this Japanese classic chilled ramen dish, and she'll also show you two different dressings.  In addition, you’ll also get to roll up your sleeves and make gyoza (Japanese potstickers), hands-on.

You’ll enjoy substantial tastes of everything Kanako teaches you, and a glass of wine or beer is included.

What You’ll Learn:


  • Wrap and fry Gyoza (the filling is ground pork, napa cabbage, and Chinese chives) and enjoy eating them with condiments such as soy sauce, rice vinegar, and chili oil


  • Hiyashi Chuka- chilled ramen with toppings. The toppings are very flexible, and Kanako will talk about how much fun it is to add your own creative twists
  • Soy Sauce and Vinegar Dressing
  • Creamy Sesame Dressing
