I didn’t really have high expectations for this book. I’ve read ramen cookbooks before and they usually sound really gross.
This one is different. The recipes sound decent. The writing is entertaining and the illustrations are cute.
However, they are a bit over complicated. They require a lot of equipment and ingredients that you may not just have around. So, this isn’t really for the poor college student or struggling single parent trying to make dinner more interesting. Some of the recipes might be but for the most part you need a full kitchen and a little money for this. A microwave and a dollar a day food budget won’t cut it.
That said, if you have a little bit of money and a full kitchen with a little counter space then these recipes could be a fun novelty. Some of them would appeal to kids. They’re a cute treat and they don’t require as much of a budget as some other fun recipes might.
The book would be a nice novelty gift for a college student or young single adult as well.
If you would like to buy Everbody Loves Ramen you can do so on August 2nd at your favorite book store.
