May is National Noodle Month and what better way to pay tribute to this universally loved comfort food than to celebrate with creative new menu applications using Traditional Japanese Noodles and sharing a few fun facts about Noodles.
Did you know …
- It was believed that noodles were first made from millet, a kind of cereal grain in China, at around 2000 B.C. Later it was found out that noodles originated from a desert region in Central Asia, the Tarim Basin in China’s Xinjian province.
- Wheat noodles in Japan (Udon) were adapted from a Chinese recipe by a Buddhist monk as early as the 9th century.
- Instant noodles may be considered an inexpensive food item today, but the fact is they were once sold as luxury item.
- In Japan, slurping loudly while eating your noodles is not considered a poor etiquette. Rather, it signifies appreciation for your host that the meal being served is delicious.
