great source of inspiration and new ideas pimp up my fall and winter ramen routine I also fell in love with the format I remember having a couple of illustrated cookbooks as a child which were really great to teach children about basic food preparation it certainly made it look fun than regular cookbooks so the idea of blending comic books and recipes struck me as pure geniusWhile this book is gorgeous and informative I have to say it seriously lacks in vegetarian options While I do eat meat from time to time it isn t a big part of my diet or cooking preferences There is only one vegetarian broth recipe and while I understand that it s not strictly traditional a few variations would have been nice And while there are many recipes for the different meaty garnishes to add to a ramen bowl again there are very few alternative ideas for meat free versions included in the book The meat balls and marinated eggs recipes look absolutely scrumptiousWhile I am not uite ready for the very time consuming process of making my own broth I love that the author thought to include a way to make home made
a great source of inspiration and new ideas
