More than a cookbook, Ramen Forever is an illustrated love letter to this deceptively simple dish curated by San Francisco-based artist Yarrow Lazer-Smith (AKA Yarrow Slaps). The author’s ob-session with ramen of all kinds has taken him to shops around the world, leading to conversations with top chefs, foodies, bloggers, and the artists that have lived off of instant noodle soup packets before ramen became a trend. Interviews with ramen heroes including Moe Kuroki (Boston’s Oisa Ramen), Yoshihiro Sakaguchi (Taishoken, San Mateo), Hans Lienesch aka “The Ramen Rater,” Esther Choi (Mokbar – NY), and Sam White (Ramen Shop, Oakland) give an insider’s view into gourmet ra-men spots across the global diaspora. The recipes in Ramen Forever range from playful to critical to restorative, showcasing the true versatility of ramen as a dish for every occasion, for people of every background and every budget.
