The pages are filled with rich, delicious, ramen recipes extensively researched directly from the masters in Tokyo, Japan. I had no idea there were so many variations of ramen. I love the well-tested and research done in this cookbook focused on fresh ingredients with contemporary flair. Preparations had the right amount of details. With easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions and mouthwatering photos.
I especially love the clean and complex broth recipes, creative ways to use toppings and condiments (like cheese!), and especially the homemade ramen noodles. Over 70 recipes to please most all dietary needs. Simply Ramen will turn your kitchen into a ramen-ya for family and friends.
