Online Cooking Class

IWASEI

Cooking with Mackerel Bouillon Ramen

Project Overview

In this online cooking class led by a professional instructor, you'll learn a delicious and refreshingly different take on Japanese ramen using a recipe that features Iwasei's miso-flavored Mackerel Bouillon Ramen.

After the class, we ask that you use the Mackerel Bouillon Ramen in your own cooking, adding toppings or other ingredients as you like so that the end result is different from the recipe introduced in the cooking class. (You'll receive two packages of the product: one to use in the cooking class, and one to use after the class.)

Finally, we'll have you answer a survey asking your opinion about the cooking class, details about the second dish you made, and have you include photos of your second dish (maximum 15 questions).

As a thank-you, at the end of this project you'll receive a S$10 gift card to Amazon or Qoo10.

Participants must have a Zoom-compatible device with microphone and camera.

About Iwasei Co., Ltd.

Founded in 1832, Iwasei is a seafood products company that specializes in mackerel. Our fish come from Kogawa and Yaizu ports, located in Suruga Bay in beautiful Shizuoka Prefecture, south of Mt. Fuji. Our business encompasses everything from buying the fish at port to freezing and production, storage and sales. At Iwasei, deliciousness, safety and trust are the cornerstones of our philosophy as we continually strive to develop products that integrate the old and the new.

About the Product

Mackerel Bouillon Ramen (Miso Flavor)

Shizuoka Prefecture has one of the largest catches of mackerel in Japan, and our employees that buy the mackerel directly at Kogawa Port have a discerning eye for the very freshest. Our factory that freezes the fish is located close to the port, ensuring the utmost freshness before processing. Our healthy, halal ramen contains no MSG, livestock meat, alcohol, or oil, and no other additives besides kansui (water with a high alkali salt content). We use mackerel in both the soup broth and noodles, resulting in a unique ramen in which you can really taste the natural umami flavor of the nourishing mackerel.
