We <3 Momofuku! This book is very fun and yummy. The binding, paper, and photo quality are great.
A lot of the recipes call for secondary recipes, but some of them are pretty quick.
1) Ginger Scallion Noodles with Pan Roasted Cauliflower, Bamboo Shoots, Quick Cucumber Pickles, and Nori – p57. The Ginger Scallion Noodles take about 5 minutes to pull together the sauce, then it needs to sit for 20 minutes and fresh noodles only boil for about 3 minutes. The Pan Roasted Cauliflower takes about 10 minutes. The Bamboo Shoots take 5 minutes, then simmer for 30. And the Quick Cucumber Pickles take 5 and sit for 20. The Nori just gets plated. Altogether, it took about 40 minutes and it was a divine dinner that tasted really special.
2) Roasted Mushroom Salad over Braised Pistachios with Pickled Sunchokes and Radishes - – p57-58. So delicious and pretty!
3) Momofuku Ramen – p39. Okay, this one’s a time investment, but oh so worth it! My gosh – the ramen broth is so delicious that it silenced our table. The pork belly is to die for! And my youngest thinks the fish cakes look like something out of Hello Kitty, so she was on board before she even tried it. There are seven sub-recipes to pull it together: Ramen broth – p40, Tare – p42, Pork belly – p50, Pork shoulder – p51, Bamboo shoots, Seasonal vegetable (collard greens) – p54, and Slow poached egg – p52.
I can't wait to try the other recipes.
If you see ingredients listed that you don't recognize, it'll save you time shopping to look them up online so you'll have a better idea what it is and what section of the store you might be looking in.
