Mike and Stephanie Le seem to believe that noodles can do almost anything, and That Noodle Life sets out to prove it.
In seven chapters that range from comfort food and easy weeknight dishes to soup, lasagnas, and showstoppers, they invite cooks on noodle adventures that cross and blur cultural lines.
Maybe you already have a go-to mac and cheese recipe but now you'll have one that incorporates kimchi and karashi mentaiko, spicy marinated Japanese cod roe. Introduce Mexico to Japan with udon al pastor. And linguine with clam sauce gains umami superpowers with the addition of miso.
Some of their recipe titles may be trying too hard, and most of us will probably have to do some extra shopping to diversify the pantry enough to make full use of this book. But there are smart ideas all over the place, and many temptaions.
