Ahoy Captain Cats here and today I’m going to review a comic book cookbook that many of you might not get understand but to others, it could be the gateway to a whole new world and that book is Let’s Make Ramen.
Let’s Make Ramen is written by Hugo Amano and art done by Sarah Becan and is published by Ten Speed Press last year. This book is all about how to make many kinds and types of Ramen, toppings, broths and more. Amano and Becan not only did a fine job with how to make each ramen but also go in-depth with how the process of ramen is more than just a soup and food, its a work of art that you can make at home. Let’s Make Ramen is 192 pages of history, how to’s, tips and the knowledge and appreciation of this dish from Japan that is over 100-years-old.
Is this book for everyone, no, but if you know someone who wants to learn how to make this, who appreciate Japanese food and it’s culture, to anyone who wants to expand their cooking knowledge to just what they know or dreams of becoming a chef one day then yes. This book is by far one of the best cookbooks I have read in a very long time and I should know, I have books that go back to the 1950s when it comes to cooking. Now if you excuse me I need to tip my hat to the chefs and make some ramen.
