The Kitchen Ninja’s Dojo is now on Patreon

The Kitchen Ninja’s Dojo is run by myself and my spouse, Pauli. He does the art, lighting and camerawork and I do the food styling, effects and post-production.

We love to cook and share our knowledge by providing our cooking lessons for free online. Cooking should be fun and accessible to everyone. It doesn’t matter whether you are an English teacher or a dyslexic, a college student or senior citizen – anyone can learn to cook like a ninja!

We want to share our cooking lessons for free, but the reality is that they take time and resources to make. We still have to pay our bills and put food on the table. At the moment we both work regular day jobs to make ends meet, but there is a better option out there – Patreon.

Patreon is crowdfunding platform that let’s you support content you love on a monthly basis. Pledge as little as $1 per month or over $100 per month if you’re feeling generous. These funds allow us to make better lessons and meet the goals in our roadmap. Our patrons get access to exclusive perks like a dedicated feed, exclusive previews and live Q&A sessions every month.

If you love what we do on this site and want to help us make more of it – support us on Patreon!

White belt lesson

Noodle bowls are wonderfully versatile, delicious and cost-effective. This makes them great for anyone starting out with home cooking. If you are a more experienced cook, this lesson will give you a great starting point for your own cooking experiments.

In this lesson we will not just limited ourselves to asian noodles, but also consider western pasta noodles, such as spaghetti and angel hair pasta. Noodles can be made from a wide range of ingredients – and can be adapted to suit any diet.
