If your idea of ramen is a 20 cent pack like the kind you hoarded in college, this is probably not the book for you. If, on the other hand, you’ve tasted life-changing ramen (it exists), we’d recommend spending the $18 to add this to your shelf. Ivan Ramen: Love, Obsession, and Recipes from Tokyo’s Most Unlikely Noodle Joint is part cookbook and part narrative. It tells the story of Ivan Orkin, a Long Island-born chef who ended up opening one of the most-praised ramen shops in Tokyo. It will also be your guide to mastering a few ramen dishes of your own if you can’t travel overseas or to his New York Slurp Shop. Those instant packs will be a thing of the past.
