Get Your Kids into the Kitchen


If all this time at home finds your kids curious about cooking, Wagamama has introduced new online cooking classes. They start tomorrow, so make your grocery lists and get ready!

If you’re craving wagamama’s globally renowned ramen or donburi, here’s your chance to become the master of your kitchen and make some yummy noodles. The popular Abu Dhabi Mall restaurant is taking its hugely popular cooking classes online and serving up live streamed cooking classes full of tips and tricks for both adults and kids.


It’s the perfect time to learn something new in the safety of your own home, the online classes are ideal for keen mini chefs, foodies who are keen to learn more about Asian cuisine, and people who want to discover more about Asian flavours and ingredients.


Launching on Wednesday 1 April, wagamama UAE’s Executive Chef, Shiyas Kareem is first inviting kids to join him in the wagamama online kitchen where he will be teaching the little ones how to prepare a mini yaki soba from 3 – 4pm. During the hour-long class, kids will get the chance to mix and create the amai sauce, followed by a step-by-step guide on how to prepare the ingredients needed for a wagamama yaki soba.


The following Wednesday, 8 April will be the launch of the virtual sessions for adults where Chef Shiyas will teach people tuning in the skills needed to recreate wagamama’s most famous sauce, the tasty firecracker sauce.  Running from 6 – 7pm, attendees to the class will also be guided through the steps needed to create wagamama’s  prawn firecracker dish.


The hour-long classes are free to attend for all and will take place every Wednesday. The first class of the month is for kids and the following class is for adults and will continue to alternate like this for the month. Each week Chef Shiyas will teach a new wagamama dish. Be sure to check wagamama’s social media channels each Monday where the dish of the week will be announced.
