Over Our Ramen and Gyoza Dinner

Posted on Sep 18, 2009 in Hiroko's Blog

Over our ramen dinner I am planning that we will watch clips from the famous movie, Tampopo, released in Japan in 1985.  The entire plot is based on the ramen culture of Japan.  It is the story of a widow struggling    to establish herself as a ramen master in her small restaurant.  The film devotes itself to this distinctive Japanese food culture that is obsessed with perfectionism in every area.  A whole cast of amusing characters helps her to reach ramen heaven.  I look forward to seeing you and working with you in the kitchen!

In a couple of days I will post a story about American chef who successfully opened and running ramen restaurant in Tokyo.
