This book is full of all things ramen. Learn about the history of ramen, the types of ramen that are popular in different regions and ramen culture. Then, learn about the six steps that lead to a delicious ramen. These include soup/broth, tare (for example miso), aromatic oils and fat, noodles, toppings and the bowl. There are then a number of recipes including Japanese Regional Ramen, Tonkotsue Ramen, Shoyu Ramen and much more. Ramen lovers will have enough recipes to keep them busy through many meals. The author grew up loving ramen and became more passionate about it after visiting New York’s Momofuku Noodle Bar as a restaurant reviewer.
In order to make the ramen recipes, the pantry needs to be stocked with the right ingredients. I felt that, as a novice, it would take me longer than the suggested time to prepare the recipe. However, this is a delicious book for those who want to experiment with ramen.
