Yamagata village with great nature is going to have good crops in Autumn. Its famous products are Chinese yam and buckwheat noodles, “Soba”.

In this village, there are about 20 Soba restaurants which provide hand-made buckwheat noodles. Twelve of those restaurants serve a new specialty “Yamacchi Soba”.

It is served with a topping of Chinese yam which is cut finely as noodles. You’ll find the good crispy texture and the good going down smoothly feeling to be irresistible! About 50 recipes of Chinese yam are open on the official web site (Japanese only).

Fried food and Gyoza are good for appetize, steamed bread and smoothie are popular with children.
How about cooking with seasonal Chinese yam while staying home!?
