Soba noodles

Thin, brownish gray soba noodles, made from buckwheat, are enormously popular in Japan, where they are prepared year-round. There, on hot-summer days, noodles are eaten cold, arrange on a bamboo lattice rack with dipping sauce, while on chilly winter days, soba noodles are immersed in piping-hot broth. Soba noodles are available fresh and dried in Japanese markets.
