Yesterday I decided to watch the movie Ramen Girl. it's a story about a girl stranded in japan after being dumped by her boyfriend and while there she learns to cook ramen. Not cinematic genius but a decent movie.
Me being the cooking nerd that I am decided that I was going to learn to cook ramen myself. Of course going to japan and being taught by a ramen master is unfortunately not in the budget, so I enrolled in the cooking school of Google. the first step for me was finding a suitable noodle recipe, that was tough due to the fact that most recipes relied on volume measurements, and being a stickler for accuracy in dough recipes, I wanted a recipe where the measurements were in weights. I finally came across and excellent recipe on Cooking From The Heart where the noodles were the exact recipe I was looking for. the one problem was that the rest of the recipe was decidedly not vegetarian.
So that was the extent of my traditionalism, my broth is a very simple miso broth.
Cooking from the heart so be sure to check them out.
