An American running an acclaimed ramen restaurant in Tokyo seems so wildly unlikely that it would barely qualify as a movie plot, but since 2007, Orkin has been doing just that. The surprisingly compelling story of his journey to such a situation takes more than a third of the book-and is well worth reading-before Orkin embarks on a series of remarkably precise recipes for the components of a great bowl of ramen. Elements include separately rendered chicken and pork fat, two flavored salts, chicken stock, dashi, cured bamboo shoots, pork belly, half-cooked eggs, and of course, the noodles. If ramen is your obsession, you will likely never find another book so likely to be on the same wavelength.
