60+ slurp-tastic recipes

By Deborah Kaloper


A cookbook all about the iconic Japanese noodle soup – and current hipster obsession – ramen.

Ramen– a classic Japanese soup, usually made with wheat noodles and served in a slow-cooked beef or pork broth with various toppings – has become a cult-like food. Adored by fans across the world for its nourishing, hearty and comforting nature, Ramen-topia shows you how to make the world’s best ramen (with plenty of variations) in your own home.

Not to be confused with that other ramen – 2-minute microwavable noodles from a packet adored by students – Ramen-topia explores the unprocessed, original Japanese comfort food. And with a recipe to suit everyone – including ramen made with vegan stock, as well as making noodles from scratch – this book has you covered.
