About a month ago I received an email from Michael Booth, author of Sushi and Beyond and travel writer for the Independent on Sunday, to help him with an article that he was working on about ramen. After a few delays due to those pesky volcanoes, he and his photographer Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert were finally able to come check out Bassanova, where I gave them a full tour of what a Tokyo ramen shop is like inside and out. I hope they enjoyed it. I have a feeling this won't be the last time I see them.
Meanwhile back in the kitchen, I've been experimenting with the ingredients I have on hand to create my own version of shoyu ramen. This one seemed to taste the best so far.
My coworkers even went as far as to say it was better than the wadashi. Thanks guys but it's not that good...yet.
