$25.99 CAD
Active 7.07 x 10.01 x 0.64 in | 1.29 lb 192 pages FULLY ILLUSTRATED Potter/Ten Speed Press/Harmony Ten Speed Press
A comic book cookbook with accessible ramen recipes for the home cook, including simple weeknight bowls, weekend project stocks, homemade noodles, and an array of delicious accompaniments, with insights and tips from notable ramen luminaries.

Playful and instructive, this hybrid cookbook/graphic novel introduces the history of ramen and provides more than 40 recipes for everything you need to make the perfect bowl at home including tares, broths, noodles, and toppings. Authors Hugh Amano and Sarah Becan present colorful, humorous, and easy-to-follow comics that fully illustrate the necessary steps and ingredients for delicious homemade ramen. Along the way, they share preparation shortcuts that make weeknight ramen a reality; provide meaty tidbits on Japanese culinary traditions; and feature words of wisdom, personal anecdotes, and cultural insights from eminent ramen figures such as chef Ivan Orkin and Ramen Adventures’ Brian MacDuckston. Recipes include broths like Shio, Shoyu, Miso, and Tonkotsu, components such as Onsen Eggs, Chashu, and Menma, and offshoots like Mazemen, Tsukemen, and Yakisoba. Ideal for beginners, seasoned cooks, and armchair chefs alike, this comic book cookbook is an accessible, fun, and inviting introduction to one of Japan’s most popular and iconic dishes.

POPULAR TOPIC: Ramen’s popularity continues to rise, according to Google Trends. NYC favorite Ippudo recently expanded to CA with Berkeley and SF locations, and backlist sales of Ivan Ramen have only increased over the last three years.

PACKAGE AND FORMAT: The manga concept has proven very successful for TSP in both the “Comic Book Story of…” series and Cook Korean! The crossover with a Japanese culinary tradition is a no-brainer, and the visual approach to teaching these recipes makes them easy to follow.

DREAM TEAM: Sarah is well-versed in making food-related comics, and has gained experience both with Japanese food and with chef collaborations through her poster series for Chicago’s Yusho restaurant. Hugh is an experienced recipe tester and has spent significant time visiting family in Japan, where he first fostered his love of ramen.

HUGH AMANO is a chef and writer. He was the creative consultant and opening sous chef at Abraham Conlon’s Chicago exploration of Macanese cuisine, Fat Rice. Hugh is a graduate of The University of Colorado and New England Culinary Institute. SARAH BECAN is a comics artist, author, illustrator, and designer based in Chicago, and the creator of I Think You’re Sauceome, a food-centric autobiographical webcomic. Her work has appeared in various publications, including Saveur, Eater.com, Rodale’s Organic Life, StarChefs, and Tasting Table.
