Ramen

This course will turn you from a novice ramen fan into a noodle superstar.

In a culture known for its adherence to tradition, ramen has shown the ability to innovate and create its own story

Ramen is the Japanese version of Chinese noodle soup. It came to Japan from the island of Okinawa in the south west that belonged to China until Japan took over it. It then made its way from China to central Japan when the country reopened its borders during the Meiji Restoration at the end of the 19th century. This fusion dish is relatively modern in its history and continues to evolve based on various regional differences and individual touches.

Today the kodawari or artisanal movement dominates the world of ramen in which chefs bring vanguard cuisine concepts to ramen, taking care of important details such as modern techniques, producing all the elements in their own kitchen, or obtaining products from certain areas of domination of Japanese origin.

The success of ramen both inside and outside of Japan is due to its relatively short existence in Japanese cuisine. In a culture known for its adherence to tradition, ramen has offered Japanese cooks the ability to innovate and create their own history.

What you'll learn

Learn how to make the most typical ramen noodles from scratch, using Kansui, the alkaline mineral water that gives it flavor, elasticity and a unique yellow color.

The broth is usually a mix of pork, poultry, seafood, and vegetables, with everyone making their own version. In this online course you will understand the difference between the chaitan and paitan methods, so that you can then design your own broths.

You will get to know the tare, which is the component that classifies the ramen (shoyu, miso, shio). You will also see a wide variety of toppings and presentations to impress the eye and the palate. From pork cooked in the traditional way, or with the sous-vide technique, to marinated ajitama eggs and fresh vegetables, you will find countless options to delight.

Wonderfully thorough, but not overwhelming!

Really loved the way this course made me understand the art of Ramen, from its history through the building blocks to plating, while radiating respect towards the traditions, but also showing examples of the more modern approaches and techniques.

This course really challenged me (in a good way)

I really liked this course! I haven't been cooking for too long but I really wanted to challenge myself and try to make a new type of food. I am pescatarian so I didn't make the meat for the ramen but replaced it with a marinated tofu recipe I make all the time. This course was so informative and I not only learned how to make ramen, but all about its history along with the complex ingredients.

Ramen made simple!

Chef John was a great teacher! He has a profound knowledge of all Ramen types. Chef John hasn't limited himself to just one variety. He has chosen to study at in-depth level of all Ramen types. His culinary back ground is extensive as well. Which leads to an impressive skill set in his field. The entire course was a great introduction to Ramen, thanks Chef John! Stuart

Fantastic course

I loved the definition of Raman and the historical aspect. The additional fact sheet is also very welcome. His presentation style is clear, unambiguous and concise. All in all a superbly delivered course and one which has improved my knowledge of Raman significantly
